About this Pattern

If you’re looking for a quick and easy weekend project that only uses one skein of yarn, you’re in the right place. Our cozy crochet cowl is a community go-to to keep warm on a chilly day.

With this project you’ll get to practice crocheting with yarn that has low stitch definition (where you can’t see or count the stitches easily), an incredibly useful skill if you love fuzzy or novelty yarn.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you will need to get started as well as written instructions to complete the cozy crochet cowl from start to finish.

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it’s in the same weight category. Check your gauge and adjust as needed so the sizing comes out right. The recommended yarn amount will likely be different too.
