Crosshatch Cowl


Stephanie Gage


At the start of the 2008 winter season I caught the cowl fever, but could not find one that suited my tastes; thus the Crosshatch Cowl was born.

It’s a very simple pattern that was derived from a stitch pattern in 101 Crochet stitches (the book) by Interweave Press.

Materials List

– 1 skein Malabrigo Merino Worsted
– 5mm (H) hook
– Tapestry needle

– Medium sized oblong/Oval button

Finished Size

One sizeAdjustable


21 st x 7 rows = 4(10 cm)”

– using the stitch design found in the pattern.

The Pattern

– Ch. 91 (this includes the turning chain)

Row 1:
Skip 2 ch (counts as first dc), 2 dc into next ch,
*skip 3 ch, 1 sc into next ch, ch 3, 1 dc into each of next 3 ch;

Repeat from * to last 4 ch, skip 3 ch, 1 sc into last ch, turn.

Row 2:
Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into first sc,
*skip 3 dc, 1 sc into first of 3ch, ch3, 1 dc into next 2ch, 1 dc into next sc;

Repeat from * until last 3 stitches – then skip 2 dc, 1 sc into top of the turning ch, turn.

Rows 3 – end:
Repeat row 2.

(The cowl shown pictured was done in 10 rows).

– When you get to the last stitch of your final row, work the sc as usual, and then fasten off.
