Quick Gift Cowl (12 Weeks of Gifting Series), Free Crochet Pattern + Video

The Quick Gift Cowl, a beautiful v-stitch cowl in the round that can be done in a very short amount of time with enough yarn leftovers from the skeins to make another!  Cowls make great gifts because they fit just about everyone and are quick to stitch too!

This project is part of the 12 Weeks of Gifting Series!  Each week from NOW to the end of December, I'll be sharing a new pattern for something that is super easy and super quick to whip up.  We'll be using the same yarn and same hook size for every single project, just switching up the colors a bit.  Many of these projects can be made in just one sitting too!

With the holiday season fast approaching, sometimes it's hard to squeeze in the time needed to make handmade gifts for everyone on your list!  No worries, our 12 Weeks of Gifting Series to the rescue!  Click the link below for the full directory of projects:

The color sequence I used was in this order:

  • 2 Rounds Light Gray
  • 1 Round Flamingo
  • 6 Rounds Light Gray
  • 1 Round Flamingo
  • 2 Rounds Light Gray

Ch 75, then join in the furthest chain from the hook with a slip stitch, being careful not to twist.

 Round 1: Ch 4 (counts as a (dc, ch 1), then work a dc into the first chain. *Skip 2 chains, then work a (dc, ch 1, dc) into the next chain.  Repeat from * around, then join with a slip stitch into the third ch up on the starting chain at the beginning of the round.

Round 2: Ch 4 (counts as a (dc, ch 1), then work a dc into the first ch 1 space. *Work a (dc, ch 1, dc) into each ch 1 space from the previous round.  Repeat from * around, then join with a slip stitch into the third ch up on the starting chain at the beginning of the round.

Repeat round 2 until cowl is as tall as you'd like it to be.

Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!

  1. Being from Ohio mine will be 2 gray, 1 red, 1 white 4 gray, 1 white, and 1 red. I am so excited for this cal. ty vm

  2. This pattern does not make any sense! Do you repeat rows 1 and 2 until you finish or just row 2? What is the gauge for your stitches?

  3. It says to repeat row 2 to it measures 10 inches.
