How to Crochet a Cowl with one Ball of Yarn

Quick and easy projects are my jam. I also love projects that are affordable to make so that I don’t have to buy a whole bunch of yarn before I start. These types of projects are great for building stock for markets and your Etsy shop as well! This pattern cowl only takes one ball of Lion Brand Hometown USA and it is a spin on the Coz-E Bear Hug Infinity Scarf so it works up very quick. I’ve also made my first video tutorial for this! 

This pattern is free here on my blog with ads but if you prefer the printable pdf version you can purchase it from Raverly or Etsy for only $3.

Gauge is not super important with this pattern because it is a cowl, but when you do you starting chain make sure it is long enough to fit comfortably around your neck.


When working with the large hook be sure to just crochet normally and not try to pull it super tight, the stitches are supposed to have a loose feel.

About the Pattern

This pattern will use hdc in the back loop. This means that instead of inserting your hook through both top loops, you insert it in the loop furthest away from you, which is the back loop.


This patterns also uses sc in the third loop. The third loop is the loop below the front and back loops of the hdc. If it does not say in the third loop, in that row you just do regular half double crochets. 

I have made my very first YouTube tutorial for this pattern. If you would like to watch the video instead of reading the pattern click below to watch.


Ch 32, make sure your chain does not twist and sl st into the first chain to join.

Row 1: Ch 1, hdc all the way around. Sl st into the first hdc to join. (32 hdc)

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in third loop all the way around. Sl st into the first sc to join. (32 sc)

Row 3: Ch 1, Hdc blo all the way around. Sl st into the first hdc to join. (32 hdc)

Row 4: Sc in third loop all the way around. Sl st into the first sc to join. (32 sc)

Row 5-14: Repeat rows 3 & 4 until you reach 14 total rows. Fasten off and weave in ends.

This will give you a height of about 10 inches. If you would like to make your cowl taller, you can continue to repeat rows 3 and 4 until you reach your desired width. I hop you love the pattern if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out and don’t forget to tag me on IG @coze_creations in you pics of your finished cowl, I love seeing your pictures!
