Two Button Cowl

After making the “Drapey Infinity Scarf” and matching “Slouchy Hat,” I was itching to make a cowl that would stay close to my neck and protect it from any stray gusts of wind. I really liked the use of buttons on this scarf, making it so that you could easily put on and take off the scarf without wreaking havoc on your hairstyle, but I also wanted to try out this ribbed crochet technique. My favorite thing about the world of crafting is that you are free to mix and match and do things your own way.

Here is how it turned out:

Two Button Cowl

Hook size: J (are you sensing that I am a fan of this hook size?)

Yarn weight: Light worsted (France size 3 )

Yarn amount: 50 g if working with 1 strand of yarn or 100 g if working with 2

Stitches Used:

Ch = Chain

Hdc = Half double crochet

Sc = Single Crochet


Chain 95 (or shorter/longer according to your length preference) using 2 strands of yarn

Round 1: Hdc in 3rd chain, and in all others

Round 2-8 (or until your scarf is about 6 inches/15 cm wide): Hdc in the extra loop on the back side created by the hdc in round 1 instead of the top hole as usual (see above link for more details on how to do this)

Tie off and weave in ends.

Single crochet around the entire outside of your scarf using one of the 2 colored yarns to create a border.

Add 2 buttons to one side of the scarf.

And there you have it! Stay tuned for more adventures in craftland!
