All That Glitters Crochet Cowl


All That Glitters Crochet Cowl

In the dead of winter all you want to do is curl up in a ball and hibernate until the spring season arrives. Turn that frown upside down and let us introduce you to the All That Glitters Crochet Cowl. This is a sparkling crochet design that will make you want to leave the house. Gold Leaf yarn is used in a white color with magical gold specs. This is an easy crochet pattern to work up, but you must know how to do the front post double crochet stitch and back post double crochet stitch. We promise it'll be well worth it and it'll lift your winter spirit.


Crochet HookP/16 or 11.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(6) Super Bulky/Super Chunky (4-11 stitches for 4 inches)


  • 231-100 Gold Leaf: White/Gold 3 balls
  • Lion Brand Crochet Hook - Size P-15 (10 mm)              
  • Lion Brand Large-Eye Blunt Needles (Set of 6)


8 sts + 5 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.


FPDC (front post double crochet): Yo, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around the dc post, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st behind the FPDC.

BPDC (back post double crochet): Yo, insert hook from back to front then to back, going around the dc post, draw up a loop, (yo and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip stitch in front of BPDC.


Cowl is worked back and forth in rows, then ends are sewn together to make Cowl.

This is a sexy cowl. With the big chunky texture, it states warmth but also class. The colors of this yarn makes this all special by itself. Thanks for posting this quality free crochet pattern .

Since this is a Lion Brand project, I searched their website in hopes of a free pattern download. I didnt find it, but if someone else decides to search, please post a link. In the meantime, well just have to settle for the instructions in this post. The required stitches for this project arent difficult. What really makes it is the yarn thats being used. If you cant find this specific yarn, any holiday yarn should work.

The gold leaf yarn mixed in with the white yarn does make this cowl pop with the added glitz and glam that it adds. This cowl gives you a more formal look and would be a great accessory to wear when you need to dress up a little more than you do every day. Pattern looks easy to follow along with. Will have to try this project.

This is the perfect combination of cozy and chic! The gold leaf accents makes this cowl look really expensive.

This pattern makes a beautiful thick cowl in any color, that looks rich. The pattern is simple enough, yet it does fail to mention that you need to turn after each row. I find it easier to turn after chaining three for the next row. Has anyone made this in another color?

This looks SO soft and cuddly! We moved to Arizona a year ago, but this almost makes me want some cold weather to try it out...almost! ) Love the bulky yarns!

I love the sparkle of the metallic in this pattern. It reminds me of Deco Foil and adds that perfect holiday touch.
