Llama and Silk Crochet Cowl Free Pattern

When the cooler days arrive, I will be well prepared! In addition to my lovely Lacy Infinity Scarf, I now have this cute crochet cowl as well.

This was not a new stitch, but a good old buddy. I used it to make Summer Baby Blanket as this simple stitch works wonderfully with variegated yarns.  

I’m not happy with my button, and I will definitely replace it as soon as I can find a better one. I think a black or dark green button will look so much better.

But I do like the idea of a button on my cowl. Since this is a lacy stitch, I can pass the loop through the open spaces and style my cowl in different ways.

And here is my free pattern:

Skill Level: Easy

Finished size: 26 inches by 11 inches

Materials: Royal Llama Silk Splash by Plymouth Yarn (60% fine llama, 40% silk), 2 skeins (one skein weights 50 grams and measures 102 yards)

Crochet Hook US size G/6 (4.25mm)

Big button 

Ch 45.

Row 1: (4 dc, ch 3, 1 dc) all in 5th ch from hook, *sk 5 ch, (4 dc, ch 3, 1 dc) all in next ch* across, dc in last ch. Ch 3, turn.

Row 2: (4 dc, ch 3, 1 dc) all in next ch-3 space across, dc in 3rd ch of turning ch-3. Ch 3, turn.

Repeat Row 2 until your crochet piece measures 26 inches in lengths.

To make a button loop, make ch 13 (more or fewer depending on the size of your button), sl st to 1st ch. Fasten off. Attach the button on the other end of the cowl (use the picture below as a guide).
