Chain Mail Cowl, a Free Crochet Cowl Pattern

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

Free crochet cowl pattern

Looking for free crochet cowl patterns? You’re in luck! Today I am sharing a free cowl 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 crochet cowl, Berroco Comfort, 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.

What’s great about crochet cowls?

Crochet cowls are similar to scarves, but with a major added bonus. They don’t come unwound from your neck and fall off! They are very convenient to wear because they stay hugged around your neck to keep you warm! And what’s great about this one? It’s a free crochet cowl pattern! Even better!
