Alice Button Cowl, Free Crochet Cowl Pattern

Free Crochet Cowl Pattern



Another gorgeous crochet pattern that works up quick! I love everything about this cowl from the coconut shell buttons to the yarn and last but not the least the stitch pattern. It took me just two skeins of Big Twist yarn and it was one of those patterns that grew a mile a minute. Perfect for impatient people like me!

Though the color of this yarn was perfect it was so hard to capture it on camera. I love the name of the yarn color too, Cinnamon. The cloudy day didn’t help at all. I finally had to make my mannequin lie down to get some decent shots.

    I have made 2 of these! Absolutely beautiful. I made one into a prayer shawl. I simply used a larger hook & made 16dc rows instead of 12. Thank you!

    Hi, I just made the Alice Button Cowl, I love how your instructions are so easy to understand. I do have a dilemma. I used a worsted wight cotton and a larger hook I/5.50 mm. I had to 21 loops as per the pattern and kept crocheting until it measured 12 inches however the width of the cowl is only 30 inches and is too short to wrap around. What can I do to fix this without having to frog it all? Thank you so much

      Hi Anne, that is why you should check your gauge. Your work is almost 5 inches shorter, mmm…I am sorry, you will have to frog it.

        THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR QUICK REPLY. I AM GOING TO BE BRAVE AND TRY ADDING SEVERAL ROWS OF SINGLE CROCHET TO ONE END. TO THIS I WILL ATTACH THE BUTTONS, THEREFORE THE SINGLE CROCHET SECTION WILL LAY UNDER THE PATTERNED SECTION. WILL ONLY KNOW IF IT IS SUCCESSFUL ONCE I HAVE FINISHED. SORRY FOR THE CAPS, I CAN SEE WHAT I AM WRITING MUCH BETTER THIS WAY….. THANK YOU!
