This Autumn Sky Cowl, free crochet pattern, can be worn in two ways, either hanging long or doubled up for bulk and warmth. The lightweight yarn allows it breathe and feel light when worn not causing heaviness. The Autumn Sky Cowl is a Fall accessory you’d want to have when the air gets crisper and cooler. This cowl is a very simple cowl to make once you get the hang of the main, featured stitch.

Pattern Notes

  • The cowl is worked from the bottom up.

  • Ch1 does not equal a stitch.

  • Ch4 equals a dc plus ch1 (the beginning of the first V-st) of the round.

  • Always join with a slip stitch.

  • Stitch count will be indicated in < > at the end of each round.

  • The cowl will slightly curl, this is normal and it’s because of the Kernel sts being used. Once the entire piece is done, it won’t curl.

  • Lightly block your color to relax the stitches.

  • You can also embellish your cowl with a flower or buttons. I used Cre8tion Crochet’s Spring Crochet Flower to embellish my cowl.

  • You can make your cowl taller or shorter by repeating rows 10 - 17.
