Spacey Chevrons Cowl Crochet Pattern

This crochet cowl pattern was one of the first I put on paper and one of my favorite to wear. It uses only double crochets and chains which makes it a great easy project for the beginner! I love the subtle modern chevron patterning on this cowl.

My favorite aspect of this patterns is that it uses only 1 skein of yarn! I love love love one skein projects. The yarn I used is Big Twist Sincerely yarn from Joann’s. I was pleasantly surprised by this yarn. It is super soft heavier worsted weight yarn and has all the squishiness (this is an official yarn description term right?) and it drapes really well too. Ok enough chit chat…

    This pattern looks so pretty! I love the chevron – I may need to try it! I am also a serious fan of using double crochet. Patterns that use this stitch typically work up so quickly (which is always good when you have lots of wips!). I also love your color choice for the scarf in this post, I love raspberry shades in fabric!

    On row 1 “Dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 2 chs. Dc in next 4”

    There needs to be a skip 2 chains between the 2dc and the 4dc.

    Worked as written, I ended up with 2 extra chains at the end.

    This cowl is lovely! I really love the stitch and would love to make a throw from it. Could you please tell me how I would go from the end of row 1 to start row 2 if I were not joining them? Thank you!!

    Hi I am having trouble understanding join to top of beginning ch 3 using a sl st. Use the tail from beginning chains to join the bottom. Would you have a picture to explain? Thanks
