Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic crochet stitches like double crochet
  • Good tension control and comfort with small hooks and lace weight yarn

Pattern Description:

Here are two neckwear patterns - one a cowl to wear loose or double wrapped and the other a long scarf - that are light enough to wear year round. Loosely wrapped over a cotton blouse or T-shirt either makes an attractive accent. Covering a bare neck or wrapped around a turtleneck, they add an extra layer of warmth in winter. Both are made from lace weight yarn that is a mixture of soft merino wool and silk to make them super soft, not a bit itchy, and with a lovely drape. Though the lace pattern may make this project look complicated, the pattern uses the most basic stitches which any beginner will know.


29 stitches and 14 rows - 4 x 4 swatch

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Scarf is 5 inches wide and 70 inches long excluding optional fringe
