Crochet Granny Rows Cowl Pattern

Fast For Christmas

Hello everyone! So the end of the year has snuck up on me. I got distracted with so many other projects this year that I, once again, waited until the last possible moment to start my christmas crocheting. *sighs* Every time. I’m sure I’m not the only one though!

I have seen many wonderful granny square and rows patterns online, so I decided to try my hand at making a design too. It works up pretty fast, so it should be easy to make plenty between now and christmas! so here we go!




  • Size “I” hook
  • Worsted weight yarn in desired colors
  • Tapestry needle

Yarns I Used:

  • Loops & Threads Impeccable in black
  • Caron United in burgundy

Notes and Abbreviations


  • St(s) = stitch(es)
  • Sp(s) = space(s)
  • Sk= skip
  • Ch(s) = chain(s)
  • Sl st = slip stitch
  • Sc(s) = single crochet(s)
  • Dc(s) = double crochet(s)
  • Rep = repeat
  • Rnd(s) = round(s)


  1. Numbers at the end of the instructions: In square brackets “[ ]” will be the total stitch count for that row/round.
  2. This cowl will be worked in a flat piece, going back and forth in rows, then sewn into a loop to form the cowl.
  3. This pattern is worked in stitches in multiples of 4.


The gauge for this pattern allow for quick work. Using an “I” hook, every row will give me about 1/2 inch. And every 4 stitches gives me about an inch.

Crochet Cowl Pattern

1. Ch 136 (basically 39 miltiples of 4 stitches).

2. Sc in the 2nd st from the hook. Sc across. [135 sts]


3. Ch 4, turn (counts as your first dc and a ch). Sk 2 sts. *Dc 3 in the next st. Ch 1, sk 3.* Rep from * to * across. Sk 2 sts, dc 1 in the last st. [135 sts]

4. Ch 3, turn (counts your first dc). Dc 3 in the next 1-ch sp. *Ch 1, sk 1 set of 3-dcs. Dc 3 in next 1-ch sp.* Rep from * to * across. Dc 1 in the last st (the 3rd ch from the original 4-ch post of the previous row). [135 sts]

5-22. Repeat steps 3 and 4

23. Ch 1, turn. Sc in each st across. End off. Weave in ends. [135 sts]


24. Choose which side of your cowl will be the outside. Fold it in half, leaving your chosen outside face on the inside for now. Load your tapestry needle with yarn. Sew the cowl closed to form it into a loop. End off. Weave in ends. Turn it inside out. Done!


Done and Done

And with that, you have a granny rows cowl.
