Easy Crochet Cowl Pattern Made from CHAINS – Wintergreen Cowl

Have you ever heard of a cowl pattern being made from CHAIN STITCHES? If you are a beginning crocheter, this easy crochet cowl pattern made from chains will be perfect! Let’s make the Wintergreen Cowl together.

The Wintergreen Cowl was one of the first crochet patterns I designed. I released it as a paid pattern on Etsy toward the very beginning of my small business.

It is so interesting to see how far I’ve come since then!

Want to know a secret? When I first designed this cowl, I was still camera-shy. I had no desire to model my crochet items, so I took pictures of the cowl —and other patterns—on a dress form.

Thankfully, I’ve come a lot farther than that now!

The Construction

Ok, so I told you this easy crochet cowl pattern is made out of chains. How, you might ask, is that possible?

It’s simple, really.

What we are going to do is make a series of chain loops that are joined together by slip stitches.

We’ll start with one loooong chain joined into a round.

And from that chain, we will make a series of smaller loops that will eventually stack on top of each other to form a cowl.

Sound confusing? Don’t worry, it really IS super easy!

The Yarn

Let’s talk real quick about the YARN!

Another feature of this pattern is how quickly it works up. And the reason it works up so fast is partly the yarn!

I used a super bulky yarn for this cowl. If you look on a yarn label, you will always see a little yarn ball with a number on it. Super bulky yarn is a #6 yarn.

Yarn Bee Colorplay is what I used, but any #6 bulky weight will work!

Can I Adjust the Cowl?

YES, absolutely! Within the pattern you will find some instructions that will tell you exactly how to adjust to fit your needs.

You can adjust the original chain loop by making it any multiple of 8, and you can easily add more rows to make the cowl longer.

Wintergreen Cowl

By Desert Blossom Crafts

Notes:

  1. Cowl is worked lengthwise in a continuous round.
  2. To adjust the length, add or subtract chains in multiples of 8. To adjust the width, simply keep repeating the stitch pattern, which happens to be only one row!

Materials:

  • One skein of Yarn Bee Colorplay, in the colorway Tree Song…OR Approximately 60 yards of any super bulky yarn (number 6 weight)
  • K (6.5mm) Crochet hook

Instructions:

Note: to view the video tutorial for this pattern, just look a few paragraphs up!

Ch 72 (or a multiple of 8 if you want to adjust the length). Join with a sl st to first chain, forming a long loop.

Rnd 1: *Ch 9, sk next 7 ch, sl st in next ch. Rep from * 7 more times. Ch 9, sk 7 ch, sl st in first sl st.

Rnd 2-11: (Ch 9, sk next ch lp, sl st in next sl st) around.

If you would like a longer or shorter cowl, simply add or subtract rounds here.

Rnd 12 (last rnd): (Ch 8, sk next ch lp, sl st in next sl st) around. Fasten off and weave in ends. Since the yarn is so bulky, I recommend using your crochet hook to weave in the ends instead of a yarn needle. If you would like to, you can also tug on the cowl in the slip stitch parts to open it up a bit more.
