8 Crochet Cowl Patterns for Cool Weather

I absolutely love a crochet cowl for the changing seasons! Not only are they super practical and cosy in the cool fall and winter months, but they are also such cute accessory pieces to add to any outfit!

And something even more fun… choosing yarn colours you love so that you can wear it as often as you’d like and make it true to your clothing style!

I have a few crochet cowl patterns I’ve designed myself at HanJan Crochet but I not only wanted to share those free patterns of mine, but also patterns from other talented designers who I’m able to collaborate with! I think the joys of the crochet community is just that… we are a community! We all support each other and these patterns are just too great not to share! I know you’re going to love them!

Within this blog post you’ll see: My Seaglass Bandana Scarf (which has a cowl neck) , The Classic Cowl, The Two (or more) Colour Cowl, The Diamond Reflection Cowl, The Honeycomb Cowl, The Spring Modern Granny Infinity Scarf, The Everlasting Infinity Scarf and The Chunky Cowl! Don’t they all sound beautiful?! Well they are, just wait and see!

What Yarn Should I Choose For My Crochet Cowl?

I often get asked what sort of yarn works best for a crochet cowl pattern or indeed any accessory or garment that goes close to your skin.

I would always recommend something that feels soft and luxurious. I know that lots of people find yarn with a high wool content quite irritating but you can get some really beautifully soft yarns that won’t be scratchy at all.

The most important thing to consider for these crochet cowl patterns is the yarn weight you need to use. The cowls use a variety from fine, 4ply yarn all the way to chunky. Here are my top recommendations for each weight:

Fingering/4ply Category 2 Weight Yarn: Stroll Fingering Yarn by WeCrochet is 75% Fine Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon, 211m/50g and beautifully soft.

Double Knit/Light Worsted Category 3 Weight Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly Yarn by Sirdar is 55% nylon, 45% acrylic, 165m/50g and perfect for warm and cosy crochet patterns.

Aran/ Medium Worsted Category 4 Weight Yarn: Sublime Extra Fine Merino Worsted is 100% merino, 100m/50g and lovely and light to work with.

Bulky/Chunky Category 5 Weight Yarn: Hue + Me Yarn by Lion Brand is 80% acrylic, 20% wool, 125m/125g and designed with fabulously soft accessories in mind.

These are just some ideas from yarns that I’ve enjoyed working with, there are so many more out there to try!
