Lily Cowl Crochet Pattern

Hi all! I hope you’re enjoying this chilly weather as much as I am.

If you’ve kept up with my latest post, you know all about my FREE yarn box from MakerU. Every subscription to MakerU receives a free box of over $100 worth of yarn and I was lucky enough to snag one of my own.

I’ve been so inspired by all of these unique and colorful yarns I received. And I’ve been stitching up projects like a mad woman. I’ve even been experimenting with some new stitches, such as the shell stitch in my new Simple Shells Light Wrap. It’s perfect for a walk outdoors or to take on vacation.

Well, I wanted to share my latest creation with you too. I tested out the intricate Lily of the Valley stitch in my Lily Cowl. This stitch is so easy. It’s only a series of double crochets in a one-row repeat. But it looks complex and impressive.

And the detail of the stitching looks beautiful with the Karaoke yarn from my box. It only took about 440 yards of yarn, so it’s a quick and easy pattern to stitch up.  I initially liked this yarn because my daughter’s favorite color is purple, and I knew she’d love whatever I made. And I had 4 skeins of it, so it was perfect!

The yarn has a subtle gradient, which adds a rich dimension to the cowl. The Karaoke is a soy silk/wool blend. It’s soft and great for felting too. And it comes in a ton of vibrant shades.

It would make a great gift this holiday season, or keep one for yourself. It’s perfect for chilly weather and the color is beautiful on anyone.

You can get a bunch of your own surprise luxury yarn by subscribing to MakerU here. When you sign up you get a box of over $130 of luxury yarn shipped to you for free. Every box of yarn comes in a ton of various fibers and colors. You can use some of it to make the Lily Cowl or who knows what else your yarn may inspire! I still have a couple of ideas myself.

Easy Breezy Buttoned Cowl Crochet Pattern

Skill Level: Easy

Materials:

Approx. finished dimensions: Length 30” x Width 8.5”

Gauge: 4”= 4.5 Primrose stitches by 4.5 rows

Special notes:

  • Ch – chain, sc – single crochet, hdc – half double crochet, dc – double crochet, st(s) – stitch(es)
  • Primrose stitch is used and explained in rows 2 and 3
  • The Primrose stitch is made up of 2 rows

The pattern

Ch 92

Row 1:  (sc, ch 2, sc) into 3rd ch from hook. Skip next 2 ch, (sc, ch 2, sc) in next ch, repeat from * across the row, end with 1 hdc in last ch. Turn

Row 2: Ch 3, *3 dc into the next ch 2 sp; repeat from * across the row. 1 dc into the top of the turning ch, turn -1 ch 3, 30 shell sts, 1 dc

Rows 4-20: repeat rows 2 and 3

Tie off, cut yarn.

To add fringe: You will need to cut 90 strands of yarn approx 9” in length. To make it easier, I wrapped my yarn widthwise around a box of kraft dinner 90 times. Take 3 strands of yarn, fold in half and knot into each ch space along the bottom of the scarf. Trim ends of fringe to even out.

To add buttons: Lay scarf right side facing up and place buttons horizontally on the right side of the second row of the pattern. The buttons should be 2” apart placing the first one 1.5” from the edge of the scarf. See picture below for clarity.

Using a tapestry needle, sew in ends.

Big Button Puffy Cowl Crochet Pattern

Winter is coming. That means it’s time to hunker down with hot cocoa, movies, and plenty of blankets.  And I, for one, couldn’t be more excited!

Cold weather months help us slow down naturally, not only because of the holidays but also because it’s too chilly to even want to do much.  

Still, life goes on and as much as we might like to huddle beneath our duvets and hibernate, sometimes we do have to venture out.

And it’s on those days that you’ll want to break out this big button puffy cowl.

Keep it cozy with this super warm cowl.  Wear it alone or pair it with your favorite winter coat for those extra chilly mornings.  It’s easy to make and the thick yarn makes this crochet up very quickly.  

Plus, it buttons so you don’t have to worry about it slipping off.  

With one of these in your arsenal, chilly mornings will be no match for you.

Free Cross Hatch Button-Up Cowl Crochet Pattern

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 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 pattern for the beginner or more experienced crocheter. It is super easy and quick to make; I’m sure 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 scarf – make one for yourself and then make more for the special people in your life!
