Super Bulky Basket Weave Cowl – Free Crochet Pattern

Super Bulky Basket Weave Cowl - Free Crochet Pattern

This isn’t your average cowl. It’s more like a piece of armour to protect you from the elements. You can scrunch it down around your neck or you can wear it up around your face with just your eyes peeking out, your breath providing a little extra warmth as you curse the cold.

Do you live in an area of the world that gets snowy and cold? I live in New England, and we just had a foot of snow dumped on us. The high today is four degrees – with no end to the cold temps in sight. Needless to say, I’ve got warm and cozy crochet on my mind.




After digging through my stash I found some Red Heart Mixology super bulky yarn I bought this past summer, clearance at A.C. Moore for about $2 a skein. Smart me snatched up 6 of those babies…I know a good yarn deal when I see it! Let me be blunt with you and tell you this cowl is a yarn eater. If you are using the same yarn as I did, buy 3 skeins to be on the safe side.

If you make this with the yarn I used (Red Heart Mixology) the cowl will be fairly rigid, and able to stand up on its own. If you’d like the cowl to be a little more drapey, use a slightly thinner super bulky yarn (Caron Tea Cakes works lovely). Happy hooking, and stay warm!
