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 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 design.

It’s very easy 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 a different yarn.

  • Worsted weight size 4 Yarn – Right now we’re loving Cascade 220.  It’s 100% wool, and is completely soft and cozy.  You’ll need about 3 skeins/ 128 yds each.  You can purchase Cascade 220 from our yarn store here.

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch

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.

| Crochet

Beautiful modern crochet patterns. Easy crochet patterns that are quick to work up and make great gifts.

Modern easy crochet patterns from Belle Noelle Creations.

Easy Modern Crochet Patterns – I apologize for my temporary absence but I’ve been away this summer enjoying some much-needed family time at the lake. It wasn’t all fun and games though, I actually managed to squeeze in some work, including something I’m really excited to share. Yesterday I opened a new Etsy shop called Belle Noelle Creations – in honor of the love of my life, my daughter Noelle. The goal of my shop is to offer modern, stylish and easy to crochet patterns. I don’t like to spend a lot of time on a project (what can I say, I get bored easily) so most of my crochet patterns are items that can be made in a day or two. I’ll also be posting some cute kids crochet patterns in the shop shortly.

Hopefully you’ll get a moment to check out my new shop and let me know what you think. I’m appreciative of any feedback you may have.

Everyone loves free giveaways so….the first 30 people who can show me that they’ve pinned the above photo on Pinterest or shared this post on Facebook will receive FIVE FREE CROCHET PATTERNS from me! Just send me a quick email here to show me a link to your pin or post and I’ll send you your free crochet patterns.

Oh, and I’d like to give a huge shout out to my beautiful model and friend Sherri who makes my designs look fabulous!
