Hi, Thanks for stopping by, here you can the pattern for a quick and easy crochet cowl that will only take you about an hour to make.
Yep, a super cosy warm crochet cowl that is quick to make and looks amazing!
And even better, there is a pair of Fingerless Gloves to go with it as a matching set.
I’m a huge fan of a cowl rather than a scarf, as they don’t fall off, and keep you neck super warm. My inspiration for this design came from the “lazycrocheter” in me. I like my crochet to be quick, to be easy, and do exactly what it’s supposed to do!

About the Tramlines Easy Crochet Cowl
In this case it was all about the yarn! I was gifted as part of the blog hop Some Mighty Stitch yarn from Wecrochet.com, and this yarn is just wonderful, so so soft.
I’m a big fan of super bulky yarn as it works up so quickly, and this cowl is no exception!
My plan for this design was easy, quick, and a statement cowl, and I think I achieved it!
This cowl only uses a few stitches and most are classed as beginners or improvers.
This pattern is absolutely perfect for beginners looking to improve their crochet skills a little and luckily for you I have videos for most of these steps.
You need to know how to (US terms):
- Foundation Half Double Crochet (FHDC)
- Double Crochet (DC)
- Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) (Video tutorial)
- Fasten off and weave in ends
This is a really easy pattern, and only just above a beginners level.

I love a crochet cowl, no issues with them falling off your neck, and they keep you so warm.
How long does it take to crochet a cowl?
Well I’ve said it was quick, and it is! From start to finish, this takes about an hour to crochet.
I can imagine this being a really good last minute teacher gift, along with the wrist warmers, as standing on a cold playground, these would keep you lovely and warm!
Yarn for a crochet cowl
The yarn for this project was key.
I needed a high quality, super bulky yarn, and Wecrochet had just the yarn.
This is a 20% superwash wool, 80% acrylic mix. Each 100g ball is 44 yards and it comes in 24 different colour combinations.
It was so hard to choose what colour I wanted to use as 24 colours is a lot of colours to choose from, but I went for “Spruce”, as it’s such a deep full green colour.
I used 2 balls for the Cowl, and a further 2 balls for the Fingerless Gloves
