Free Crochet Pattern...Crochet Class Cowl!


Class is in session!  Learn to crochet or brush up on your crochet skills by working up this pretty lighter weight cowl. Each panel is made of different basic crochet stitches: single crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet.  Panels (sections of each stitch) are repeated for extra practice.  Even for experienced crocheters, this cowl is fun and relaxing and works up quickly.  The fabulous green is reminiscent of growth as we welcome spring and celebrate learning new things!

Crochet Class Cowl
By Jennifer Dickerson

Materials:

  • J (6.0 mm) Crochet Hook
  • 2 Skeins Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Solids (Colorway: Kelly Green) Note: the orchid color cowl below used 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft.
  • Tapestry Needle (for weaving in ends)
Sizing:
  • Width 5.5 inches, because of the nature of a single crochet stitch (tighter) versus a treble crochet stitch (more open), width may vary a bit throughout the cowl.  This is normal.
  • Circumference 36 inches (note: if you'd like yours a bit longer, just work more pattern repeats).


Instructions:

Ch 16


Panel 1 (Single Crochet)-

Foundation row: In the second ch from your hook, work a single crochet in each chain.
Row 1: Chain 1 and turn.  Work a single crochet in the first stitch and in each stitch across the row.
Repeat until this section measures 6 inches from beginning.

Panel 2 (Double Crochet)-

Row 1: Chain 2 and turn.  Work a double crochet in the first stitch and in each stitch across row.
Repeat until double crochet section measures 6 inches and total cowl length is 12 inches.

Panel 3 (Treble Crochet)-

Row 1: Chain 3 and turn.  Work a treble crochet in the first stitch and in each stitch across row.
Repeat until treble crochet section measures 6 inches and total cowl length is 18 inches.

Repeat these three panels once more for a total length of 36 inches.  If you'd like a longer cowl, just keep working panel/section repeats until desired length is reached.




Finishing:

Seam your cowl by whip stitching it together or crocheting it together.  Weave in the ends and wear with pride!

    1. Thanks for your question! When I refer to panels, all I mean is each section of the piece...the single crochet panel/section, the double crochet panel/section, and so forth. Hope that helps!
