Camouflage Crochet Cowl – A super simple pattern
I was excited about creating this Crochet Cowl. This yarn was given to me by a friend and didn’t have it’s tag on, so I don’t know the name or brand of the yarn. However, I have found some excellent alternatives here:
I had this yarn for quite some time and couldn’t really decide what to make with it. A few days ago, I picked up the yarn, cast on a few stitches and let the yarn take me where it wanted. I first thought it would be a sweater for my daughter, then thought maybe a scarf. It finally revealed itself to me. I guess the yarn found itself. It decided to be a Crochet Cowl.

Yarn and Materials:
- Yarn – Worsted Weight (4) – Approx 200 yards/ 1 skein. [Brand-unknown] – Alternatives here:
2. Crochet Hook Size – 5.5mm
14 sc in 14 rows = 4″ or 10 cm. Gauge is not critical for this project.
Dc- Double Crochet
FPdc – Front Post Double Crochet
Ch – Chain
Ch-2 sp – Chain 2 space
- The yarn I am using is a Worsted Weight Yarn ( If you are using a different weighted yarn, then use the hook mentioned on the skein of yarn. You can chain any number of stitches, so that it measures 24″ in length.)
- This Crochet Cowl is worked in a rectangular piece and joined to form a closed loop.
- Beginning ch 3 counts as 1 dc.
Row 1 : Dc in 3rd chain from hook, dc in each st around, turn. (86 Dc)
Row 2 and Row 3 : Ch 3, (FPDc in next stitch, Dc in next st)- Repeat till 2nd last st, dc in last st, turn. (86 sts = 42 FPdc, 44 dc )
Row 4 – Row 12 : Ch 3, dc in each st around, turn. (86 dc)
Row 13 – Row 15 : Ch 3, (FPDc in next stitch, Dc in next st)- Repeat till 2nd last st, dc in last st, turn. (86 sts = 42 FPdc, 44 dc )
Fasten off, join the shorter sides of the rectangle using a tapestry needle.
It was a quick project and took about 2 hours to complete. The crochet cowl worked up well and is just warm enough for spring and autumn.
For the gloves, I used the Elizabeth Gloves pattern by Dabbles and Babbles
