Free Crochet Pattern…Estelle Button Cowl!

The Estelle Button Cowl is worked up in chunky lace and is a lovely addition to a wintry wardrobe.  Double “V” stitches make a pretty, easy, and lacy cowl!

Estelle Button Cowl

By Jennifer Dickerson


  • 6.5 mm (K) hook
  • 1 Skein Red Heart Boutique Treasure, shown in the “Spectrum” colorway (cowl as shown used the entire skein, if making yours longer, please adjust yarn amounts)
  • 2 Buttons (Be sure they fit through holes before sewing them on, buttons shown are 1 inch wide)
  • Tapestry needle


  • 7.5 inches wide
  • 32.5 inches long


Ch 23

Row 1: In the fourth ch from the hook, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) . *Skip 3 ch, then (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in the next ch, repeat from * to last three ch, skip two ch, and in the last ch, work 1 dc.  There should be 5 “Vs” across.

Row 2: Chain 3 and turn.  In the center of each “V” from the previous row, work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc)   There should be 5 “Vs” across when you complete the row.  Work a dc in the turning chain space.

Repeat row 2 until desired length or until you run out of yarn.  From one skein of this yarn I got 39 rows.

Assembly & Finishing:

Using matching yarn, sew buttons to cowl as shown below.  Weave in any ends that remain and you’re finished!

Below is a video you can watch to crochet the Estelle Button Cowl stitch by stitch:

  1. I have a few skeins of Red Heart Boutique Treasure so I might just have to make a couple cowls using this pattern, thanks!

  2. I started making this and it is so beautiful! I am only getting 4 v's, however with the 23 chains. I started over 5 times, and still only am getting only 4. At 15 rows, it still looks great.

    1. Hi I have noticed the same thing, I have realised if you start with a chain of 27 instead of 23 you should have your extra four chains to do the fifth v hope this helps for the future.

  3. I contacted you today via email. Thank you so much for your lovely pattern & the permission. Greetings from Puerto Rico. 😉

  4. Thank you for sharing this pattern. I already made 2 and it is really easy and growing quickly. Also for those who are in doubt, the pattern is right, exact number of stitches as it says, no mistakes at all.

  5. Jan. 5, 2015 I love the look of this scarf, but my crochet is so tight I have to do 45 rows to get 32". And even with that it doesn't look as long as yours when I put it on my neck. Help, what I'm I doing wrong?

    1. Hi there and thanks for your question! If your crochet is tight and are not achieving the desired length, just continue repeating rows until you get the length you are after…hope that helps!

  6. I just finished this in the Lion Brand Jiffy yarn in Purple Spray..I love it. Thank you for the pattern..I will be making more..I just have one quick question..Am I right in thinking when it is done you have one straight short end and one scalloped looking short end?..Or did I do something wrong?

  7. Hello. I am trying this pattern and would love to see the video but i cannot find it on this page? Is thrre a way yo see it? Please hrlp thAnks

  8. Grateful for your simple free pattern for a cowl scarf. My church Prayer Shawl group are making scarves to give to Senior Citizens next winter. Your pattern is basic and quick to make, I am thinking about using a lighter type yarn to make scarves that can be worn during the milder temperatures.

  9. Thank you for the pattern it is so pretty ! I am going to make one or more for a friend . I think she will like it as much as I do
