Nettie's Super Simple Cowl - free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Nettie’s Super Simple Cowl
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

If you can crochet a chain, you can make Nettie’s Super Simple Cowl!! All you need is one skein of Lion Brand Landscapes Yarn in Tropics, a J (6.00 mm) crochet hook, and yarn needle to weave in the two ends, and one evening; because not only is this cowl super simple, it’s super fast, too! That means it’s not too late to whip up a few for last minute gifts!! Nettie’s Cowl can be worn in several different ways, and adding a shawl pin or clip to it increases the ways it can be worn. I have also included links to video tutorials for the chain stitch and the slip stitch (which is just making a chain st into another st) so even a beginner can make this cowl. Enjoy!!

*** Guess what?! I’ve made a video to help with this stitch pattern. Find it here.

  1. I LOVE this! After Christmas I think I’m gonna make it for myself! 🙂 *at this time it’s all gifts, LoL! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • There are links in the pattern where you can order the yarn. If you want to buy it locally then look for a worsted weight roving, or any other worsted weight you like. The gauge may change a bit, which will also change the size, but you can either go with it, or make it larger or smaller by adding or subtracting starting chains in a multiple of 8.

  2. I love the look of this! Question: if you skip 7, that means slip stitch in 8 ?? Also, as you go, should rounds be in the middle or in the same area? ( I’m a real novice!) Do you have to count the whole time?
    Awesome pattern/scarf!!

    • That’s right! If you skip 7, then you sl st in 8. The slip stitches will fall in the center of the 7 chains from the previous round. It sounds like you have the idea, you can do it!!! If you get stuck, join the facebook group I linked at the bottom of the pattern and post photos and ask questions.

  3. I’d love to leave a 5 star rating on your patrern, but can’t figure out how to do so. Can you advice me kn how to do this?

    • You can go to ravelry and click the 5 stars on the pattern page there. There is no rating system on my blog. Thank you so much!
