How to make a cowl with easy crochet stitches
Cowls are so easy to wear in the fall or the dead of winter. No need to wrap it around or it coming loose on you like some scarves might do. Plus, they are smaller so you have less to carry around and, more importantly, less to crochet!
This Icicles cowl looks really sophisticated but is easy to create and can be worked by an advanced beginner. The bulky sized yarn makes this crochet cowl nice and thick to really fend off the cold for you.
I also created an Alpine Cowl Crochet Pattern if you would like to try your hands at the beautiful Alpine stitch but work on a smaller scale.

This cowl crochet pattern is worked on the long side going back and forth in one piece. A button is added to one short side at the end. No button hole is needed since the stitches are far enough apart for the button to go through.
Measurement & Sizing:
This cowl is a one size fits most. It is 20″ long and 6″ high.
Icicles Cowl Crochet Pattern:
Foundation: start with 43 fsc
Row 1: ch2, dc in 1st fsc, *sk 1 st, (sc, dc in next st), rep to 2nd to last st, dc into last st, turn
Row 2: ch2, dc in 1st st, *sk 1 cluster of sc/dc st, (sc, dc in next st), rep to 2nd to last st, dc into last st, turn

And that’s h ow easy this cowl pattern is! It gives you a fantastic texture and the blue and white speckled yarn works perfect with the stitch pattern.
All that is left, is to sew on the toggle button. The stitches left enough space in between so you can close this cowl as tight or loose as you like. So ti can really fit a lot of sizes.
