Country Cottage Cowl Crochet Pattern
The Country Cottage Cowl features a beautiful, rigid texture and is the perfect accessory for Fall and Winter! This crochet cowl pattern includes instructions for two size, child and adult, but you can easily adjust it to be any size!
This has been one of my most highly requested patterns! I’ve been asked numerous times over the past year if I planned on making a scarf pattern for the Country Cottage Collection. I’ve had the idea written down in my notes for a long time and I’m so happy to have finally finished one for the collection. So introducing the Country Cottage Cowl!
If you’ve made any of the other Country Cottage patterns you may have noticed they are all worked in the round, that’s just the nature of this stitch pattern. So I went with a cowl pattern and I just love it! It wraps nicely around the neck and provides plenty of warmth! I’ve included 2 sizes in this pattern, child and adult, but you can very easily adjust the the length and width to be any size!

In 2020, I designed the Country Cottage Stocking, which is a crochet Christmas Stocking pattern. I fell in love with the texture that 2 simple crochets stitches, the double crochet and front post double crochet, created so I’ve been designing as many Country Cottage patterns that I can with them!
In 2021 and early 2022, I had designed the Country Cottage Mittens and Country Cottage Beanie patterns I was asked many times to design a matching scarf too that a set could be made! I loved this idea so I’m thrilled to finally have the Country Cottage Cowl done!
Paired with the mittens and/or the beanie, these would make a wonderful gift set or matching set for yourself!
For yarn I used Big Twist Value in the color Mustard, but feel free to use any medium (4) weight yarn! Big Twist. Value can be found at Joann’s stores and I love how affordable it is, yet still feels soft and comes in a variety of beautiful colors.
Other yarns I think would work great for this pattern is: Lion Brand Yarn Color Theory, Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch, Red Heart Yarn Comfort, Red Heart Yarn Super Saver, I Love This Yarn!, or Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek.
Feel free to also use more colors, to make a striped or clock blocked cowl!
The instructions for the Country Cottage Cowl include 2 sizes: child and adult. The child size measures approximately 25″ in circumference and has a width of about 8″. The adult size measures approximately 28″ in circumference and has a width of about 10″.
This pattern can easily be adjusted to be any size though! Try making it smaller for a toddler, make it extra long to be an infinity scarf at can be wrapped around multiple times, or work extra rows for more neck coverage!
To adjust the circumference: work any even number of chains for your foundation chain.
To adjust the width: repeat rounds 3 & 4 as many times until your desired width is reached.
