True story: I fully intended to make this big, buffalo check blanket scarf, but I ran out of yarn. I was planning on going to get more, but then I thought about how I could make the current size work… and ta-da! The buttoned cowl was born! I like this better because it’s not as heavy and bulky as a full blanket scarf would have been, but it still gives that cute bulky look.

COWL

Start with black

Ch 57 (any multiple of 6 + 3)

Row 1: dc in 4th ch from the hook and in each ch across (54 dc)

Row 2: ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and in next 5 stitches, *join burgundy in last step of last dc,

dc in next 6 stitches with burgundy,

NOTE: do not fasten off black or burgundy, carry it across the entire row

Row 3 & 4: carrying up both black and burgundy, repeat row 2

Row 5: drop black and fasten off black, carry up burgundy, ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and in next 5 stitches, *join cherry in last step of last dc, dc in next 6 stitches with cherry, join burgundy in last step of last dc, dc in next 6 stitches with burgundy* repeat from * to * across (54 dc)

NOTE: do not fasten off burgundy or cherry, carry it through the entire row

Row 6 & 7: carry up burgundy and cherry, repeat row 5

At the end of row 7, drop cherry and fasten off, carry up burgundy and join black

Repeat rows 2 – 7 to row 64.

In the next row you will make the buttonholes

Row 65: drop burgundy, in black ch 3, turn, dc in same stitch and in next 7,  ch 2, skip 2 stitches, dc in next 10 stitches, ch 2, skip 2 stitches, dc in next 10 stitches, ch 2, skip 2 stitches, dc in remaining stitches

Do not fasten off

Next is the border. I wove in all my ends before starting the border.

Ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch and ch across, (sc, ch 2, sc) in the corner, *sc evenly across side to next corner, (sc, ch 2, sc) in corner* repeat from * to * around the entire piece, join to first sc with sl st

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Lay out your piece so the buttonholes are on the bottom left. Sew on buttons to the right along the bottom. I sewed one in the middle of the last 3 burgundy squares. This is the direction you want it to be when you put it on and button it.

    1. I’ll try… it’s so hard to explain! Put it over your shoulders so the buttonholes are on your left and the buttons are on the right. Then bring the button holes over to the buttons and button them (it will still look a bit awkward at this point) Then you’ll have to fiddle with it so the corners at the bottom line up. You could also secure it in this position and sew it so you don’t have to figure it out again.

      I have no idea if that made any sense… lol. Let me know if you need more help 🙂

  1. Hi Breann…love your buffalo plaid cowl.
    Getting ready to start one for my daughter.
    One question, what does double crochet in the “same” stitch mean?
    Thanks,
    PATTI
