Cross-Hatch Button-Up Cowl Crochet Pattern – Winter is quickly approaching but I have to be honest and admit that it's not my favorite season, but at least I'll be cozy this winter with this thick and rich cross-hatch button-up crochet cowl.
I actually crocheted this cowl back in August while I watched my daughter swim at the lake – how's that for being prepared! I'm sure all the other beach dwellers were thinking “um, kinda hot out here to be making a scarf.”
This cowl is the perfect crochet pattern for beginners learning how to crochet or even the more experienced crocheter. It is super easy and quick to make; I made it in one day. The yarn I used is really soft and I love how thick and luxurious it feels when I wear it.
It's the perfect crochet scarf pattern – make one for yourself and then make more for the special people in your life!

Make a slip knot and chain 36.
ROW 1: 2dc in the 4th ch from the hook, skip 3 ch, 1 ch in the next ch, * ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 chs, skip the next 3 ch, sc in the next ch, repeat from * across row, turn.
ROW 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in next st, *skip next 3 dc, [1 sc, ch 3, 3 dc] in the next ch-3 space, skip the st, repeat from * across ending skip last 2 sts, sc in the top of the turning chain, turn.
ROWs: 3 -47 (or until it reaches 35” in length): Repeat row 2.
ROW 48: sl st in first 3 sts, carry on as usual as per row 2 until the last shell space, then 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sl st into the last st.
Break yarn, weave in ends.
Sew on your buttons. One end has 4 points and the other end has 5 points. Lay the finished piece down with the end with 4 points on the right and the end with 5 points on the left. To figure out the placement of buttons, on the end with the 5 points and side closest to you, sew the first button between shell 1 and shell 2 in the 3rd row (the center of the button should be about 2” from each edge). The second button should also be between shell 1 and shell 2 but should be further down in row 7, approx. 3” from the center of the other button. Once complete, wrap the cowl around your neck and button the buttons in the space between the shells in between rows 2 and 3.
