Light As Air Cowl

A Free Crochet Pattern

Although, it is still cold where I am, I’m dying to work on some projects for warmer weather. So, I decided to make a cowl,suitable for warmer weather, and quick enough to do in between other projects. And, the Light As Air Cowl was born.

This cowl uses a single crochet mesh stitch through out, so the lacy fabric is perfect for a Spring accessory. This cowl is quick to work up, but in all honesty,  single crochet items grow so much slower than the bigger stitches. But, even with that, I still completed this cowl in a few days. It is a one row repeat, which makes it something you can work on with out a lot of focus.

The Light As Air Cowl is included in the Bring On Spring Blog Hop, hosted by Through The Loop Yarn Craft. From February 1st to March 1st,  each day there will be a new pattern pdf given away for free.

This pattern will be available for a free download on February 24th. You will need to go to the host’s page to get the download code and then come back to this post and click the download button. You will then be taken to Ravelry,  where you can enter the code.



Materials Needed:

5.5 mm hook
1 skein, Madelinetosh 80/10/10 fingering in Wade, or 200 yards of fingering weight yarn scissors

Stitches Used:

ch= chain
sc = single crochet


before blocking: 10 sc + ch-2= 4 inches

After blocking: 10 sc + ch-2= 4 inches

12 ½ rows= 4 inches


30 inches before blocking

32 inches after blocking

Additional Notes:

Cowl is worked flat, in one piece, then both ends are joined. Blocking is important for this item, to open the mesh stitches up more. Once blocked, the length will grow as well. If you are using a synthetic yarn, such as acrylic  or a non stretchy yarn, you can work more rows to get the correct measurement.

Repeat row 2 until you reach 30 inches, or your desired length.

Fasten off, leaving a length of yarn measuring at least 30 inches, and block using preferred method.

Using the mattress stitch, or your preferred joining method, join both ends together. Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
