Just Peachy Crochet Cowl

May 20, 2017

And I have yet another Caron Cake pattern. I can’t help myself! I’m obsessed, I tell ya! I made this cowl using Strawberry Trifle. I loved the peachy pink with the creams and grays.

I wanted it open, airy and fringe-y. It’s not too thick, so it could be worn in the springtime or on cooler summer nights. If those exist… I live in the desert so summer is hot all the time. But I was able to rock this cowl a couple times before we started hitting the high 90s. The 100s are coming soon and once they do… nice weather is all over for us.

 

I loved this scarf so much I made one as a teacher gift for my Mini Me’s preschool teacher. For this one I used Rainbow Sherbet.

Dare I say I liked this one even better and I really wanted to keep it for myself. But I didn’t!

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

Do not fasten off, sew both ends of the cowl together using a slip stitch. Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Add fringe to each ch 2 space from the last row. I used 3 12 inch pieces in each space. Trim to your liking.

  1. Just finished this for the most part. However when attaching the ends the yarn is one color and when going up the colors don’t match and it looks off. Is there a way to stitch where you don’t see the seem?

    1. Hi Mona! You can easily increase the starting chain (as long as it’s a multiple of 5). The cowl is worked in rows and the rows increase towards the outside of the cowl. I added a pic of me wearing the cowl so you can see what it looks like on. Hope this helps!

  2. Hi there, I was wondering do u have this pattern on a video. I’m new to crochet and I’m still learning how to read patterns.

    1. Hi Monique, no I don’t have a video. Sorry about that! If you have any questions, feel free to ask! You can ask here or PM me on Facebook or Instagram 🙂

  3. Hi Breannot, I love your cowl. pattern at end of row 13 says you have 17 chain 5 spaces and 2 chain 3spaces which I do. But I cannot seem to get 20 chain 5 spaces on row 14. Can’t figure what I am doing wrong! Thanks.

  4. Help….. after crocheting the 80 chains and you start row 1 you say chain three, and start with double cr in the 4th ch. from hook, so you are chaining 83 chains??

    1. Hi Ashleigh, no I don’t have any other tutorials for this scarf.

      Instead of skipping over the first ch 3 space in the row and moving to the ch 5 space, put your first sc in the ch 3 space. This will give an extra ch 5 space at the beginning and end of the row. I hope this helps!

  5. Thanks very much Breann, I had promised to make this cowl for my daughter but couldn’t find the pattern. I am so happy that I came across this again on Pinterest. She will be delighted. I will be visiting often and there are many items that I would love to make. Wishing you every success. Kind regards, Debbie (South Africa)
