Cozy  Free Crochet Cowl Patterns

When you want a crochet scarf that drapes nicely out of the neck of your coat, a crochet cowl pattern is just the ticket. Once you start learning how to crochet a cowl, it may become your new favorite type of scarf. Crochet cowl patterns are versatile and fashionable.

Peeking out of a jacket or sweater, they make your outfit more interesting and add sophistication. Not only that, but crochet cowls are very comfortable and keep you warm. Look over these 18 Cozy & Free Crochet Cowl Patterns to see what makes them so appealing.

Crochet cowls differ from infinity scarves in a few ways. Infinity scarves tend to be longer for wrapping, and have only one edge. Cowls can have any kind of closure or can be pulled over the head.

They tend to fit the neck more snugly than other scarves, which means they are perfect for keeping out chilly drafts. Anyone who's taken a long walk on a windy day could appreciate that!
