Fall Cowgirl – A feisty crochet cowl for fall fun

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Fall Cowgirl is a cowl with a small shawl attached. It is a crochet version of my popular Spring Cowgirl knit pattern.

This fun little neck warmer can be worn as an accessory to your fall outfits, and is made to neatly tuck into most coats. The size of the bottom portion is large enough to keep you warm and tuck into even a v~neck coat, but not so large as to be uncomfortable when it is tucked in. Of course, you can also wear it on top of your coat to show off your lovely crochet skills!

This pattern was featured the 2020 Countdown to Christmas blog hop hosted  by Ned & Mimi and Itchin’ for some  Stitchin’.

The yarn for this design was provided by Crystal Palace. All opinions are my own.

Getting Started
  • Read through all instructions before beginning
  • Fall Cowgirl is made by first creating a small triangular shawl worked in rows, then folding it into a circle and creating the cowl section in continuous rounds on top of the long edge of the triangle.
  • Row counts are at the end of each Row after the period, if the count has changed from the previous Row. {count here}
  • Chs and sl sts are not included in Row counts unless specified.

Pattern

Triangle Section

Row 1 (ws): Ch 2, (sc, ch 2, sc) in first ch made. {2 sc}
Row 2 (rs): Turn, sc in sc, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 sp, ch 1, sc in sc. {4 sc}
Row 3: Turn, sc in sc, ch 1, sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 sp, ch 1, sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1, sc in sc. {6 sc}
Row 4: Turn, ch 1, sc in sc, ch 1, [sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1] 2 times, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 sp, ch 1, [sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1] 2 times, sc in sc. {8 sc}
Row 5: Turn, ch 1, sc in sc, ch 1, [sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1] to ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 sp, ch 1, [sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1] to last sc, sc in last sc. {10 sc}
Rows 6-20: Repeat Row 5. {40 sc after completing Row 20}
Row 21: Turn, ch 5 (counts as first tc and ch-1 sp) , fptr around first sc, ch 1, [fptr around next sc, ch 1] to ch-2 sp, (tr, ch 2, tr) in ch-2 sp, [fptr around next sc, ch 1] until 1 sc remains, (fptr, ch 1, tr) around/in last sc. {44 sts}
Row 22: Turn, (sc, ch 1, sc) in first tr, ch 1, [bpsc around next tr, ch 1] to ch-2 sp, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 sp, ch 1, [bpsc around next tr, ch 1] to ch-5, (sc, ch 1, sc) in ch-5 sp. {48 sts}

This row should work out so the last ch-1 sp before the ch-2 has a sl st in it, but if you have missed a st somewhere and it does not work out, just place the (sl st, 5 hdc and the next sl st) all in the ch-2.

Pull loop long and remove hook.

Weave in the tail from the start of the section ONLY.

Block piece flat.

Cowl Section

Rnd 1: (This round is worked along the sides of the rows from the triangle section, which is also the only edge without a border.) Place loop back on hook and tighten loop, fold triangle so the first and last sts for Row 54 are touching, sl st in first st of Row 54, sc in same st, * [ch 1, skip side of next row, sc around side of next row] to side of tr, (ch-1, sc) 2 times around side of tr, rep from * through last tr, [ch 1, skip side of next row, sc around side of next row] to end of round, do not join round.
Continuous Rnd: [Ch 1, sc in ch-1 sp] around in a continuous spiral until yarn is almost gone (or to desired height) and the center back is reached, ch 1, sl st in ch-1 sp.
Fasten off then weave in ends.

Wear or give and enjoy!

    • I’m happy with how it turned out. Now I have about 3 more ideas from making it though. I need more time!!! So many ideas, not enough time to make them all!!!!!!

  1. This is such a cool pattern. I love the colors. I’ve put it on my Craftsy wishlist so I can make a few purchases from you when I get settled and have full access to my yarns.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. I have started this project with a DK weight yarn and I love the way it is looking so far! I just have one question about cowl part. As I’m not using the same yarn I can’t continue until the yarn is finished and know I’m at the right length, so could you tell me how long that section is?

    Thank you for your help,
    Alice

  3. This pattern is absolutely gorgeous! I’m making one for a gift and I have a question about the pattern. For row 54, when it says [3 hdc in ch-1 sp, sl st in ch-1 sp] , do I hdc and sl st in the same ch-1 space, or do I alternate between hdc and sl st?

  4. Love this! Just wondering if I’ve messed up though- the first set of fptr/bpsc (row 21-22) seems to be one side, and the second row (row 42-43) on the other side. That’s correct, right? I had assumed that they would be on the same side of the scarf. (I’m terrible at counting rows!)

    Reply
    • Oh dear! I missed a row, not you. I think everyone who made it thought they missed a row and just added one on to fix it, but somehow I missed a row when I was putting in the row numbers. You just need one more row of linen st before starting the second set of fptr and bpsc. I added in into the pattern just now, so it should be find now. Ugg! Thank you for pointing it out!

  5. I am having trouble adding the cowl to the triangle. What does your cowlgirl look like if you fold it in half and lay it flat? What does your triangle section look like before you add the cowl to it? Thank you for taking time to answer me.

    Reply
    • The triangle looks like a right angle triangle before you add the cowl, then you fold it so that the long end is the base of the cowl, join, and make the cowl.

  6. I have what is probably a dumb question but here goes. I want to make this pattern for my niece but she just wants a kerchief type scarf. Is it possible to make this omitting the cowl part? She has requested a kerchief scarf with ends long enough to cross in the back and hang over her shoulders. This is a beautiful pattern that I would love to adapt to her request if possible. Thanks for taking time to answer a newbie’s question and for sharing your talent.

    • Yes, you could do that. Actually it’s on my to do list, but you can most likely figure out how to make the triangle part bigger on your own if you want to make it soon. I doubt the pattern will happen before a month or two.

  7. Jesse, Thank you for posting this pattern. I’m using Caron Simply Soft Paints to make mine today. Just what I needed to make a bandana style scarf.

  8. Hello Jessie, I see someone asked about doing this without the cowl? Did you do an addendum for just that? Thank you so much. This is lovely.

    Reply
    • The part without the cowl is made first, you can do that and continue to make it larger without adding the cowl. It should be pretty simple!

  9. I have been looking all over your site for an answer, so I’ll just ask here. If we purchase one of your lovely patterns, can we sell the handmade items that we make using the said pattern?

  10. This is so cool I am originally from Nebraska and have a couple dear friends in the Sandhills that will love this

    Thank you
