Crochet Wide-V Cowl Pattern
Hello everyone! It’s been too long since I’ve written a blog post. Honestly though, I thought it would take longer. There were complications after we realized that we were in need of new hosting for the blog and then even more problems after we had to work out the plugin kinks. And thanks you Craig, my techy-talented husband, this was done more smoothly than would have otherwise been done if it was just me. But here we are and ready to go!
9.00mm size “N” Hook
Super Bulky size “6” weight yarn
Yarns I Used:
Lion Brand Heartland Thick & Quick in Sequoia (one roll)
Notes and Abbreviations
- sp(s) = space(s)
- st(s) = stitch(es)
- ch(s) = chain(s)
- sl st = slip stitch
- sc(s) = single crochet(s)
- dc(s) = double crochet(s)
- sk = skip
- rnd(s) = round(s)
- rep = repeat
- This pattern is worked in rounds.
- For the cowl pattern you will NOT turn at the beginning of each new row. All stitches will be facing the same direction. HOWEVER, for the gauge instructions you will be turning at the beginning of each row.
- Add as many rounds as you would like to make the cowl “taller”.
- The first ch of certain rounds does not count as your first stitch for that round; the first 3 chs of certain rounds DOES count as your first stitch for that round.

You can continue to add rows to your liking, but this is a good width to keep the wearer nice and cozy. If you do continue, just keep going with the Row 3 and Row 4 sequence until you’re done.
