Chunky Cardinal Cowl Crochet Pattern

By: Vicky Pietz from
Chunky Cardinal Cowl Crochet Pattern
Chunky Cardinal Cowl Crochet Pattern

"This Cardinal chunky cowl crochet pattern takes just one skein of yarn to make this lovely fashion accessory. The own weave is achieved using a treble crochet stitch. Dress up a pair of jeans with a basic top or add to the beauty of a little black dress. This crochet cowl is so versatile. The yarn is quite soft and the colors effortlessly change throughout the skein. In order to achieve the look of this stitch pattern,The project is worked flat and seamed at the end. Therefore, you decide the width at the beginning and crochet until the skein is gone or the cowl is the length that you desire. I could not achieve the same look when working in the round."

NotesIf you have worked with Lion Brand Homespun Yarn before like I have, you know it can be hard to see your stitches. Therefore, this crochet pattern makes it easy to work this this lovely yarn. It is soft and has a pleasant drape when combined with this stitch pattern.


Crochet HookK/10.5 or 6.5 mm hook

Yarn Weight(5) Bulky/Chunky (12-15 stitches for 4 inches)

Crochet GaugeGauge is not critical. I got 14 STs to 4 iches. If you prefer a longer infinity scarf style, you’ll need another skein as I used the entire skein of yarn for the size that I made.

If you would like to make this cowl narrower, increase or decrease the stitches by a multiple of 4 plus 6. This particular size cowl is 4 X 10 = 40 + 6 = 46 stitches.

Finished Size14 inches wide X 36 inches around.
