Rustic River Cowl – Free Crochet Pattern

Now that you’ve had a chance to make up the Rustic River Beanie, it’s now time to introduce you to the free crochet pattern and video tutorial for the Rustic River Cowl!

The Yarn:

Once again this cowl is made with the beautiful Canoe yarn by Sugar Bush yarns.  It is a bulky weight yarn that is a blend of fibres making it super soft and squishy! One of the things I love about this yarn is the hint of colour that is woven throughout the strand of yarn.  It makes it truly unique.

If you’d like to know more about Sugar Bush Yarns, you can find their website (along with a shop finder) here: https://www.sugarbushyarns.com/yarn/canoe.html

Definitely check them out, with their wide selection of colours and fibres you won’t be disappointed!

The Cowl:

As I mentioned above, this cowl complements a hat that I designed by the same name and yarn.  If you’d like to check out that pattern (which includes a video tutorial), you’ll find it here: Rustic River Beanie – Free Crochet Pattern

This cowl features a lot of the same stitches which gives it a great texture.  The design is nice as it is not too bulky when worn under a coat, and would even look nice over top of a coat or sweater.  The bulky weight yarn means it works up quickly.

The pattern is graded as an intermediate pattern simply because of the variety of stitches.  To help you along your way a complete video tutorial for the cowl can be found below.

For the cowl you will need about 3.5 skeins (or about 340 yards) of yarn and an 8 mm crochet hook. You will also need 3 buttons that are between 1.25-1.5 inches in diameter.

To position buttons: Lay cowl flat with the wrong side facing and the button holes along the right side.  To figure out where to place your buttons, take the left hand side and cross it over the middle of the Cowl. Next take the right hand side and cross it over top of the left side. The Cowl should form a nice “V” at the bottom. Take three stitch markers and place them attaching them to the fabric through the button holes. Re open your Cowl and sew your buttons in place where the stitch markers are placed.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
