Copenhagen Cowl, Free Crochet Pattern + Video

The Copenhagen Cowl is a perfectly luxurious cowl in every way.  Crocheted in a beautiful, yet easy and relaxing v-stitch in gorgeous and buttery soft sock yarn, it is both fabulous to make and wear!  Subtle gradients of coral, gray, and cream allows the yarn to do all of the color changing for you.  This amazing cowl is truly a special treat for that extra special lightweight yarn you've been saving!

        • 24 inch circumference

        Note: To change circumference, check out the multiples for the starting below.  To change height, work as many rounds as you like.

        Abbreviations and Tutorial Links:


        Ch 120, then join in the chain furthest from the hook with a slip stitch, being careful not to twist. (To change circumference of the cowl, work any multiple of 3)

        Round 1: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), then work a dc in the first chain. *Skip 2 chains, then in the next chain, work a (dc, ch 1 , dc).  Repeat from * to end of round.  Join to close round with a slip stitch in the topmost chain of the turning chain.

        Round 2: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), then work a dc in the first stitch. *Skip 2 stitches, then in the next stitch, work a (dc, ch 1 , dc).  Repeat from * to end of round.  Join to close round with a slip stitch in the topmost chain of the turning chain.

        Repeat round 2 until you reach desired height of cowl.  Weave in any ends.

        1. Love it! Totally love it, thank you! This is even a perfect pattern for a beginner. I will be sharing your links with some newbie crochet friends. They will love it. Hugs Mare

        2. What other kind of yarn can you use? Would a #3 weight work?

        3. Very beautiful and elegant scarf. Love it. How much time did it take u ?

        4. Merci beaucoup pour ce super tutoriel. Je vais me faire un cache-cou. Très bien expliqué.

        5. This is a beautiful cowl. I am a newbie at crocheting and thought cowls would make nice gifts for Christmas. Thank you Jennifer for always making the patterns so easy to read. I understand the basic stitches. I appreciate you going above and beyond for newbies like me and other crocheters who are more experienced. Then i write down the psttern in my notebook and go back to watch the tutorial that goes with the project.
          Jennifer. You are awesome and thank you so much. This makes crocheting so much more enjoyable. I would have never gone beyond crocheting afghans if ot weren't for you. Thanks again. Sue R.

        6. Very pretty and elegant. This is just the pattern I've been looking for to make up with some gorgeously soft alpaca and silk yarn that's been in my stash since last fall.

        7. How many rounds did you end up doing?
