Free Plaid Cowl Crochet Pattern

Crafts December 3, 2016

Plaid is one of the few patterns that never seems to go out of style. It remains a staple whether it’s on scarves, flannel shirts, kilts, bags, blankets, or coats. Every year when fall arrives, the plaid comes out and makes us all feel a little warmer. If you feel you need more plaid in your life (and who doesn’t?) you might want to try this free plaid cowl pattern.

You’ll need four colors of chunky yarn (suggested: grey as the main color,  and blue, chartreuse, and cream as accent colors) and a size “N” or “P” crochet hook. The cowl is made in-the-round, with a striped base which is then crocheted over the top to produce the plaid pattern. There are some photos to help illustrate the technique.

There’s a helpful chart you can use to ensure the right color placement, and if you’ve chosen different colors, you’ll simply plug those colors into the chart instead of using the original colors. Quite simple to do and will afford you a host of options!

The stitches you’ll need to know are: single crochet (sc), slip stitch (sl st), chain one (ch1), chain two (ch2), and you’ll also need to know how to crochet in the spaces as well as the stitches.

If you’d like to try this out for yourself, you can find the free plaid cowl pattern over at Make My Day Creative.
