The cowl is really a cross between a cowl and a shawlette pattern. Weekends just call for easy fashion and this weekend comfort cowl will create a statement with ease.
This cowl is a bit longer and wider than I normally make for a cowl. However, this allows for greater style flexibility. Treat yourself to a day of rest and relaxation. Great addition to any woman’s fall wardrobe.
One Skein Crochet Project
Yes, this can be made in a weekend and you can use up that one skein of yarn that is begging for just the right project. Very easy and relaxing pattern with beautiful results.
Easy, Classic, and Comfy Weekend Style
Here are a few different ways to wear this beautiful weekend comfort cowl.
This view shows the cowl wrapped around twice. I love that this is long enough to wear as a warm accent piece a few different ways.
Here is a back view of the weekend comfort cowl. This really gives it the shawlette look. Wear this like this with a pretty pin in the front or on the shoulder to hold the garment in place.
Sometimes it is nice to have a printed copy of a pattern. to mark off the rows as you complete them.
Here are a few pro tips on successfully completing this crochet pattern. Since this cowl scarf is worked flat and joined at the end, it is a perfect pattern for a beginner at crochet.
Easy to Follow Pattern
This pattern is easy to follow as it consists of repeating row three until the desired length and joining at the end. Great crochet pattern for a beginner.
From row 2 and beyond, this crochet pattern can be started with a CH 3 (which would count as a DC); or a Chainless Standing Double Crochet.
How to Crochet the Chainless Standing Double Crochet
This helps reduce the gap that can sometimes show when starting off a row of double crochet stitches. Rather than completing the normal chain 3 at the beginning of a row.
Start by pulling up the yarn a bit making the loop that is on the hook a bit larger (about the height of two stitches). Hold the stitch at the bottom and the loop that is on the hook, at the same time, twist the hook around the back of the loop. Insert the hook into the same stitch, then yarn over and draw the yarn through the first two loop. Yarn over and draw the yarn through the last two loops on the hook.
There is a video on this page, as well as, video tutorials for this on my You Tube channel. Other Crochet Tutorials are on the tutorial page here too.
Directions: Weekend Comfort Cowl Crochet Pattern
24 inches wide X 48 inches long before joining.
Approximately 9 single crochet to every 4 inches. Since I used a crochet hook that is larger than the pattern calls for, the gauge is a bit less than you would normally get from this type of yarn.
Red Heart Burgundy yarn. I used approximately ¾ of a jumbo skein of yarn.
Size N Crochet Hook
CH = Chain
DC = Double Crochet
SK = Skip
SP = Space

Crochet Pattern Directions
in the 4th CH from the hook, complete a DC. [CH 2, SK 2 ST, DC in next]. Repeat between  until the end. DC in the last ST and turn.
CH 3 or start with a Standing DC, [CH 2, insert hook into previous CH 2 SP, DC]. Repeat between  until the end. DC in the last ST turn.
Rows 3 on:
Repeat row 2 until the desired length. The one in the picture is 48 inches long.
Align the ends of the cowl so that they are flat and aligned with each other. (Make sure not to twist the cowl when aligning the ends). Using a yarn needle, weave the yarn back and forth through the Stitches of each side until the cowl is joined.
Once complete, weave in the ends; cut off the excess yarn.
Enjoy wearing or gifting your weekend comfort cowl.

in the 4th CH from the hook, complete a DC. [CH 2, SK 2 ST, DC in next]. Repeat between  until the end. "DC in the last ST and turn."
Row 2: "DC,"[CH 2, insert hook into previous CH 2 SP, DC]. Repeat between  until the end. DC in the last ST turn. Do you not chain any amount in row 2 before trying to do a double crochet??
