Button cowl is worked flat. Buttons are sewed on last and the spaces in between posts serve as button holes. Stitch pattern multiple can be worked over any even number.

Ch 40 (any even number is fine)

Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work a dc. Work a dc in each ch across.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work a *fpdc, in the first st, and a bpdc in the next st. Repeat from * across. Work a dc in the top ch of the t-ch.

Repeat row 2 until cowl is approximately 30 inches long.


Sew three buttons evenly spaced apart along edge where last row was worked with a matching piece of yarn. Weave in any ends and block if desired.

  1. Sure wish this was available in knitting - I don't crochet.

  2. Love your tutorial! Very easy to follow. Although I am left handed I'm sure I will be able to create this stitch Thanks :-)

  3. I hear the rabbit and dill heathers on the video, but I could not hear the third color. Could somebody tell me. It isn’t mineral because that had purple tones. It is the bluish tweed. Thanks.
