A while ago I shared my first knit accessory pattern, the Eye Knit A Cowl pattern. It is luxurious, and so comfy, and so gorgeous! I have been asked for a crochet version of this cowl and this is what I’ve come up with. The Cable Crochet Cowl is definitely beginner-friendly. Let’s whip one up today using this free pattern.
Cable Crochet Cowl
This cowl crochet pattern uses just two stitches: the single crochet and the double crochet. It looks more difficult than it is simply because of the placement of some of the double crochet stitches, but once you get the hang of where that stitch goes, the rest is easy peasy! See the detailed photos below if you get stuck.
We are using Wonderfluff yarn for this cowl, from WeCrochet. This is a bulky weight yarn that is a blend with majority Baby Alpaca fiber. Talk about luxurious! This yarn (and cowl) is so soft against your face and super warm too. Exactly as a crocheted cowl should be! 😉
