Yarn 2 strands of DK weight, Buttons


Cute as a Button Cowl Crochet Pattern. Instant digital download.
US Terminology.

This simple elegant cowl is perfect for everyday wear.

This design came about because I wanted something I could quickly put on for the morning school run that was quick to make and easy to style. I adore cotton but had trouble finding a chunky cotton yarn so I ‘made’ my own with 2 strands of my favourite Bendigo Woollen Mills cotton.

Because it is made with 2 strands of 8ply / DK weight yarn it can be made in almost any colour, fibre and brand yarn you desire (or have on hand!). I’ve also included instructions to adapt this pattern for different weight yarns so you really can use anything you want.

Plus the button closure means you can wear this cowl in many different ways (see photo 5 for some ideas) making it one of the most versatile accessories in your closet.

Can't crochet? That's ok, I can make you one.

Level: Beginner
The pattern uses simple stitches suitable for beginners.

You'll need:
Approx. 200 m (85g) of any 8ply (DK) yarn. I’ve used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8ply cotton.
This pattern is worked with 2 strands held double so you only need about 100 m (42.5 g) for each strand..
8mm (L) hook

Finished size:
17 cm (6 3/4 in) tall lying flat.
62 cm (24 1/2 in) wide lying flat.

Included in this 9 page PDF pattern:
12 tutorial photos
9 other photos
2 partial charts to help with linen stitch and button placement.
Instructions on different ways to wear the cowl.
US English crochet terms used throughout.
Crocheted in turned rows.
Clear concise written instructions with a layout designed to make it easy to follow and not lose your place.
Text only printable pages so you can print the pattern on just 1 page reducing paper usage.
Landscape layout that looks good on a laptop, tablet or phone (simply zoom in on half the page on your smart phone to see the pattern clearly in portrait mode).
Links to 2 tutorials and photo tutorials for other special stitches used.
Tips and tricks to help you make this pattern more easily.

I love this pattern! I've made 3 so far and with each of my attempts they're looking better and better! I'm a learning as I go along, which is why I'm making mistakes. But each time I make less because I understand more now and the instructions are very clear. I truly appreciate the step by step photo tutorials included! I'm using "I Love This Cotton Yarn" from Hobby Lobby as it's my current favorite and it works out well in my opinion. Grab this pattern!

Found it more cumbersome than it should be. Ended up doing my own thing.
