Scrappy Bias Cowl - Free Crochet Pattern

The “Scrappy Bias Scarf” worked out SO well, of course it needed to be translated to a cowl. Really, the only thing that is different from the scarf is it’s one stitch wider, a lot shorter, the ends are seamed together, and there is an optional single crochet border finish.

You’ll be crocheting while holding 2 strands together, and using a big hook (12mm). This makes the cowl work up nice and quick…but…if you are weaving in tails then stop every so often to take care of them. If you are crocheting over your tails, make it an extra long tail. If you are making this in all one or only a few colors this cowl will work up in a jiffy.

Once you’re done crocheting the piece (back in forth in rows), you’ll fasten off (leaving a nice long tail for seaming), and then fold the ends together and stitch/seam together using your preferred method. Mine tends to be mattress stitch, but you do what you do. I hope you enjoy this scrappy pattern! Don’t forget to share pictures if you make the cowl, I’d love to see them!
