Cowls, free crochet patterns

Chain Mail Cowl, a Free Crochet Pattern

Chain Mail Cowl, free crochet pattern by April Garwood of Banana Moon Studio

A Crochet Cowl Pattern – Free!

Today I am sharing a free pattern with you! I designed this pattern years ago and have decided to place it on my blog as a free pattern. This will make a great gift for anyone on your list! The pattern is easy and quick and the yarn is easy-care, so you can make one for just about anyone.

Decide how many you want to make and get your yarn and hook ready. The yarn that I used for this cowl, Berroco Comfort (affiliate link), is a worsted weight yarn. I held two strands together, so you could replace those two strands with one strand of bulky yarn if you prefer.
