Free Cabled Cowl Pattern

Spread the love

Today, I am super excited to have my designer friend, Helen from sunflower cottage crochet here on the blog sharing with us her beautiful cabled cowl pattern. This is the perfect transition crochet pattern from summer to fall if you ask me. It has a chic look and is the perfect accessory that would add a beautiful look to your dressing. If you haven’t been to Helen’s blog, you are seriously missing out on great and beautiful crochet patterns that are super easy to follow! Get to know more about her designs below.

When Susanna invited me to be a guest designer on her blog I was thrilled and honoured. I LOVE her patterns and think she is just so talented! But, I had a moment of hesitation because, well I am not sure I am in her league just yet!So, I started wracking my brains for a pattern idea that was both Sunflower but also one that I thought would appeal to you all too having being used to Susanna’s stunning designs.Out came my books and stitch dictionaries, my notepad and my pen. I tried 2 ideas and frogged them for various reasons and then settled on this stitch pattern for a simple cabled cowl that looks stunning. This is an intermediate pattern due to the front post double crochets, but if you are a confident or adventurous beginner I think you could make a good go of this one. It looks great in one colour, but I love how the diamonds pop when you play with your colour changes. If you want to follow my lead with this one I simply worked all of the FPDC in a contrasting colour to make the diamonds really stand out. I had so much fun making this one that I actually forgot to take WIP photos when I made all 3 versions! I hope you have as much fun with this design too!

Materials needed for this free pattern

  • #3 weight yarn of choice. I used approx. 560 yards (less than 1 skein each of parchment, cream and meadow) of Stylecraft Special DK for the green / grey and cream version.
  • 4.5mm hook
  • Stitch markers (optional)
  • Scissors

Guage = Approximately 8 sc x 12 rows = 2” x 2”

Sizing = My cowl is 6.75” high by 12” wide (24” circumference)

Abbreviations

  • Ch – chain
  • Ch sp – chain space
  • St / sts – stitch / stitches
  • Sk – skip
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Rep – repeat
  • FO – fasten off

Pattern Notes

  • Written in US terms
  • This pattern is not reversible
  • Ch1 at the start of the row does not count as a st.
  • When working a FPDC you will do so in the stitch one row below. Foe example, if you are working round 7, you will work FPDC into the stitches on round 5. When working sc you will work directly into the previous round.
  • To amend length and make an infinity scarf you will need to adjust the stitch multiple by 12.
  • If you would like to make this in aran you absolutely can. I would suggest a 5mm hook and 2 colours (edging and main body without the FPDC stitches being a different colour). This will get you a cowl approximately 28” circumference. To do this change colours at rounds 3 and 32.
  • If you would like to use aran and have the fpdc a contrasting colour then I suggest at least a 6mm hook. Your cowl will also be longer. This is because carrying the yarn creates a much stiffer fabric the thicker the yarn is. You can adjust the stitch multiple to get the size you prefer.

Special Stitches:

FPDC – to work a front post double crochet

Yarn over (yo) and insert your hook from front to back between the posts of the first and second double crochet of the row below, and then from back to front again between the posts of the second and third stitches.

The hook should now be positioned horizontally behind the double crochet that you’re working around.

Yarn over and draw the yarn around the post of the stitch.

You now have 3 loops on the hook.

Yarn over and draw the yarn through the 2 loops on the hook, twice.

One front post double crochet (FP dc) is complete.

Meet the Designer –

Sunflower Cottage Crochet is a partnership between myself, Helen Wilkinson, and Sara Marsh. We ‘met’ a few years ago while testing for another designer – the internet makes the world seem so much smaller than it actually is! Sara lives in Kansas and I live on the North East Coast of England, UK. We both started designing around the same time and Sunflower Cottage Crochet was established about 2 and a half years ago. We have come so far since then. Together we design patterns for you, your family, and your home.
