Do you have a skein of Lion Brand Homespun in your yarn stash? Do you also have a corresponding skein of worsted weight yarn in your stash? If so, you can whip up the easiest crochet cowl in no time flat! Grab your hook and start your engines!
Easiest Crochet Cowl
This EASY crochet cowl uses two strands of yarn and a large crochet hook. By holding the two strands together we are able to create a super chunky, quick-to-work-up cowl. Definitely a beginner-friendly crochet pattern!
Lion Brand Homespun yarn is a favorite of crocheters and knitters alike. It seems that when we’re first starting out, we all gravitate to this yarn. I know I did! The colors are gorgeous and the wavy texture of the yarn is visually appealing. The problem comes when we start to crochet and the texture gets caught on the hook or is otherwise difficult to manage.
By holding a strand of worsted weight yarn next to the strand of Homespun, the stitches are easier to see, and definitely easier to crochet.
If you, like many crocheters, have a random skein of Homespun in your stash, this cowl pattern is a great way to use it up – and would make an excellent, QUICK gift!
Lion Brand Homespun yarn (one skein, “Painted Desert” colorway pictured)
Worsted Weight yarn in corresponding color (Brava Worsted in “Silver” pictured)
Crochet hook in size 9mm
Pattern written in US terms.
Hold the two strands together as you work.
Work in a spiral throughout – meaning no joining or turning at the end of each row, simply keep on crocheting. It is not necessary to use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each row but you may find it helpful.

I hope you enjoyed crocheting this EASY crochet cowl!
