The Chevron Dream Cowl is a dream to crochet and a dream to wear. It’s part of my capsule wardrobe for three seasons of the year.

It is quick and easy (taking 2 hours for a single wrap and 3-4 hours for a double wrap), and very simple to memorise the stitch pattern once you have completed the first round.

It makes a great gift, and is an easy one to crank out if you’re selling your crochet makes at a market or online.

Choose your favourite Medium #4 (10ply) weight yarn - you only need 100g for the single wrap and 200g for the double wrap.

I’ve made this one in some beautiful hand dyed Merino yarn from Louie & Lola Yarns (blue-green sample). It’s super lush and squishy, so soft next to your neck I just love wearing it - and Karina dyes up the best colours ever!

The other samples shown are: Pastel Pink & Medium Pink - Bellissimo Linden (53% Merino/ 47% Cotton blend; 80m/50g)

Dark Grey - Vidalana Celestial (Alpaca/Tencel blend) from KnitCrate. This one is particularly drapey and may well become a firm favourite in your wardrobe as it has in mine.

The pattern gives two size variations and two versions for this cowl - made with a twist or without a twist. Check out the short videos linked in the pattern specifically made for this design.

This pattern is available in US and UK terminology in separate PDFs.
