The Just Peachy Cowl Crochet Pattern is a lightweight cowl that is perfect for spring or even summer!
For this cowl I used a DK weight superwash merino wool with some mohair for that “halo” look. You can use just DK weight yarn and it will still come out the same! I think cotton yarn would be perfect for this cowl, especially for the warmer months. Acrylic would work well, too!

Caron cake in Strawberry Trifle. I used a little over 1/2 of one cake (any color or worsted weight yarn (4) would work)
6.0 mm hook
Pattern Noted & Stitches to Know:
sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
This cowl is worked in rows and both ends are sewn together. The pattern starts in the center of the cowl and gradually gets wider.

Row 1: Ch 3, dc in 4th chain from the hook, dc across (80 dc)
Row 2: *Ch 5, skip 4 stitches, sc in next* repeat from * to * across, turn (16 ch 5 spaces)
Row 3: Ch 3, sc in next ch 5 space, *ch 5, sc in next ch 5 space* repeat from * to * across to the last ch 5 space, ch 3, sc to the end, turn (15 ch 5 spaces, 2 ch 3 spaces)
Row 4: Ch 5, skip ch 3 space, sc in ch 5 space, *ch 5, sc in next ch 5 space* repeat from * to * across, skip last ch 3 space, sc in last sc, turn (16 ch 5 spaces)

NOTE: The increase rows will look a little funky, but it will stitch up nicely once both sides are sewn together 🙂

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.

So pretty! Love both color schemes ?
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?
Hi Krislyn, I don’t know of any way to stitch two pieces together without seeing a seam.
Can you work this in the round
Maybe… I’m not sure how the increasing would work out?
Never mind I am brain dead. We are crocheting not knitting lol
Is this crocheted in the round or straight? Thanks
Hi Connie, it’s worked in rows and then both ends are sewn together. 🙂
The ch 80 seems very tight and not as flowly as in the picture
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!
Hi I purchased this pattern on Etsy and I’m lost on row 3. Am I doing 5 sc in the ch 5 space. It’s just not clear
I found that the cowl started off with the beige color and ended with the peach (strawberry trifle)which is exactly opposite to your photo but that’s how it came out of the Caron cake! Any reason?
Hi! It could be the manufacturer or that we both started with opposite ends of the skein. I started from the center.
I agree …. I just made 2, one with 80 chains and the next with 90. Very snug to the neck with both lengths. I would try the next one with 120 chains and go from there.
Lovely pattern to work up though!
Good to know! I crochet loosely (and I’m only 5’0″) so I’ll add a guage to this pattern (if I can find my cowl buried in my closet…. ;D )
Love the pattern easy to follow too. Thank you for sharing ?
Awesome! Thanks 🙂
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.
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 🙂
I just finished one and it turned out beautiful. Thank you for such an easy and beautiful pattern.
That’s so great to hear! 🙂
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.
Hi Judy! Did you add the extra ch 5 space at the beginning and end?
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??
I completely do not undersyand the increase. Do you have any photos that can explain it or a video?
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!
I love the colours! The peachy cowl showcases the colours so well. Beautiful design! I just started my very own craft blog a few days ago. Would love for you to visit 🙂
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)
Awesome!! And thank you for your kind words 🙂
Somehow I ended up with far less chance 5 spots than you but oh well ? it still looks fantastic and I can worry about it next time. Thank you for the beautiful pattern!
Just finished and sewed up the seam. Is the front supposed to be where the seam is? Seems like it should be in the back but with the increase it’s longer on the seam side.
I wear the seam on the back.
Just wondering what does ”sc to the end” means?
Attach to the very end of the row with a sc
Thank you! Ok so the edge is not straight?
Yes. Once you sew it up, it’s not noticeable 🙂
Thank you for this pattern. I worked on it this evening using Sweet Roll. It worked up quickly and easily. Still need to do the fringe, but really like it. I am on the hunt for the same yarn you used…love the color scheme. I like how it is airy but will keep me warm. Hint for anyone else crocheting this cowl is to count when finishing a row to make sure you have the correct 5 spaces. Will be making more of this cowl. Thank you again!!
On your Row 3 when you say sc in ch 5 space am I just putting one sc in each ch 5 space or 5 sc?
Hi! It’s just one sc in the ch 5 space. This will create the mesh 🙂
I just completed my third of this cowl. Since I had made this previous, I added 15 more stitches. It definitely gives me more room. Thanks for the pattern. Easy to do. I might try it in the round next time.
That’s a great idea! Thank you for your kind comment 🙂
Are you counting the chain five as a stitch on row 2?
I mean on row one…thanks
Hi, row 4 how are you getting the increase from 15 to 16 spaces …..if I’m not increasing in either chain 3 spot how do I get the increase? Thanks for your help….
Hi! In row 3 you have 15 ch 5 spaces and 2 ch 3 spaces – these are like 2 half spaces, so together they equal 1. So there isn’t an increase in row 4 ?
