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.
This easy crochet cowl pattern only uses one skein of yarn which makes it quick and easy to work up. Originally I used Big Twist Sincerely yarn from Joann’s. That yarn has since been discontinued. You can substitute your favorite worsted weight yarn for this project. I like Paintbox Simply Aran or Lion Brand Heartland.
One of my favorite things about crochet cowls is that you can just toss them on and go. There’s no scarf ends to fiddle with trying to get an infinity scarf to lay just right. They are also nice for adding extra warmth under your winter jacket or wearing over your favorite sweater on chilly spring and fall mornings.
