Weekend Fashion

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.

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.

Pattern Notes

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

Size

24 inches wide X 48 inches long before joining.

Gauge

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.

Supplies

Red Heart Burgundy yarn. I used approximately ¾ of a jumbo skein of yarn.

Size N Crochet Hook

Yarn Needle

Scissors

Abbreviations

CH = Chain
DC = Double Crochet
SK = Skip

SP = Space
ST = Stitch

Crochet Pattern Directions

Chain 124

Row 1:

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:

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.

Joining: 

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.

Finishing

Once complete, weave in the ends; cut off the excess yarn.

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??

Hi, You can certainly start with a CH 3 for the first DC or do the standing DC. here is a video link on how to do the standing DC. I see I should explain this further in the pattern. Thanks so much for pointing this out. https://youtu.be/jpw2lkygq28
