Outlander Cowl Crochet Pattern

| Crochet

Claire's Outlander Crochet Cowl - Free Pattern. Inspired by the knitwear on the Outlander TV series, this Sassenach Cowl is quick and easy to make, even for beginners.

Outlander Cowl Free Crochet Pattern – quick and easy to make, even for beginners.

Outlander Cowl Crochet Pattern – Three weeks ago I underwent knee surgery to fix a chronic knee problem I’d had for many years now. For the first number of days after my surgery, I was lucky enough to have my dear mother-in-law Lynda come and stay with me during the day while my husband was at work. She was a great nurse and during our time together we decided to watch a series called Outlander.

If you’re not familiar with this TV series from Starz, Outlander is a historical time travel drama based on the best-selling books by Diana Gaboldon. The storyline follows the passionate relationship between two lead characters, combat nurse Claire and the chivalrous and handsome Scottish warrior Jamie.

Diana Gaboldon is one of my mother’s all-time favorite authors – at times I’m sure my father felt pangs of jealousy the way my mom would blather on and on about her leading man Jamie.

This American-British series takes place in Scotland during the mid-1700’s. Outlander is worth watching for the scenery and costumes alone. Their costume designer, Terry Dresbach, is simply amazing and she runs a wonderful website full of her sketches and photos of her costumes. The knitwear, in particular, is drool-worthy.

Inspired by Claire’s cowl in Outlander I decided to see if I could come up with something similar. Of course, Claire’s cowl (seen here) is knit so it’s impossible to get the exact same design and drape but I thought I’d give it a go – a great project being that I was bedridden for a couple of weeks. After a few attempts, I finally settled on this crochet cowl design.

This cowl pattern is easy to make and works up really quickly – this can be done in one evening. I loved the first one I did so much I made a second cowl with different yarn (see photo below).

OUTLANDER CROCHET COWL PATTERN

NOTES: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology

SKILL LEVEL: EASY

MATERIALS:

  • Hook: U.S. P/11.5mm
  • Worsted weight size 4 Yarn – You’ll need about 3 skeins/ 128 yds each. 
  • Darning Needle & Scissors

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • hdc = half double crochet

FINISHED SIZE:  17” tall, 28” circumference.

NOTES: Making a half double-crochet in the back loop isn’t as scary as it sounds. If you’re not familiar with crocheting this way see the photo below to help you know where to find the back loop. To crochet in the back loop of a stitch, insert your crochet hook underneath the back loop only and make your hdc as usual.

How to crochet in the back loop. The front loop is the one that is closest to you and the back loop is the one that is furthest from you when you hold your crochet work.

The front loop is the one that is closest to you and the back loop is the one that is furthest from you when you hold your crochet work.

PATTERN:

Made by holding 2 pieces of yarn together throughout the pattern.

Make a slip knot and chain 32.

ROW 1: hdc in the 3rd ch from the hook, hdc in each st across row, ch 2, turn.

ROW 2 onwards: hdc in the back loop of each st across the row, ch 2, turn. Repeat row 2 until the total length reaches 28” in length.

Finish: Carefully sew those two edges together from the inside/wrong side using the whip stitch and weave in ends.
