Crochet Granny Chevron Cowl
Fancy a very quick and easy crochet project? Last summer I designed and made a fluffy chevron cowl (see pic below). Yesterday I made a smaller, non fluffy version. I made it when I was thinking about all things granny (I couldn’t wait for the Granny CAL! I just couldn’t!). This morning I filmed a short tutorial too. It’s now up on YouTube if you want to go and have a look!
You can find the original fluffier pattern Here. I made the new cowl a bit smaller as I was restricted by the amount of yarn I had: 200 grams of chunky alpaca/mulberry silk stuff I found for £8 a skein from last year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival. The (impulsively bought) yarn had been sat waiting for nearly a year and I had no real idea about what to do with it for ages. Funny how something can jump out at you after all that time.
Righty, Some Pattern Details.
- I used a 6mm hook for my chunky yarn.
- The yarn I used was only 92 metres per 100g. I think other chunky yarns are usually a bit more than that. I used almost every bit so if you don’t have at least 184 meters of chunky then you might not make it to the end.
- It measures approx 32×32 cm (12.5×12.5 inches). That’s a circumference of 64cm.
- I chained 47 to begin, this gives you a total of 14 clusters per row
- To make it bigger or smaller, add or subtract 6. That’s enough for a granny cluster for each side.
- The pattern is written in UK terms. The video uses both UK and US terms but essentially all you need to know is that a UK treble is a US double.
- 3tr = cluster.
- Feel feel to keep on going to make a bigger version. Why not turn this snug fitting cowl into a cosy infinity scarf?!
Crochet Cowl Pattern
Row 1: 3tr in 7th from hook, (miss 2 st, 3tr in next) six times, ch2, 3tr in next st, (miss 2 st, 3tr) six times, miss 2 st, 1 tr in last st. Turn.
Row 2: Ch3, (3tr in space between clusters) six times, (3tr, ch2, 3tr) in 2 chain space, (3tr in space between clusters) six times, 1tr in last st of row. Turn
Row 3 – 29: Rep row 2, changing colour every five rows.
Row 30: As row 2 but slip stitch to join to Row 1 between each cluster. Fasten off and sew in ends.
I hope you like it. I promise it’s super easy to make and can be made in a couple of hours (maybe less, I didn’t time it).
Jeepers, I’m not wearing make up on me peepers. Again!

Oh Nice one I like !
Thank you very much Maura! xx
Looks like fun! I appreciate your specific guidance about the amount of yarn. Good to know that the amount you used was exactly enough. Frustrating when patterns don’t let you know what to expect.
Yay! Thank you. You don’t want to run out right at the end! 😀
I love a good cowl. Cozy! Great color choice. 🙂
Thank you very much! 😀
Thank you so much for this pattern. I have made so many of these since last fall and I’m still making them for my friends and their friends and their friends. I think I’ve made over a hundred so far. Thank God they buy the yarn and thank you again for the pattern because you made me look like a pro!
A 100?! That’s amazing!! Thank you so much, I’m so pleased you like the design. Cheers! xx
