Free Crochet Pattern…Vintage Corsage Cowl

With gorgeous spring weather, holidays, and Mother’s Day on the horizon, I thought something delicate, lacy, and flowery would be in order!  The Vintage Corsage Cowl is crocheted quickly in lovely and lightweight sock yarn, and two pretty shell buttons keep it together.  Three blossoms and three leaves finish it off, giving it a splash of vibrant color.

The Vintage Corsage Cowl

By Jennifer Dickerson

Materials:

  • Sock yarn of your choice (Yarn shown is Malabrigo Sock Yarn in “Lettuce” Dream In Color Smooshy Yarn in “Ruby River” and Knit Picks Stroll Sock Yarn)
  • E (3.5 mm) crochet hook
  • 2 Buttons (Lacy holes double up as buttonholes, be sure to try them out before sewing them on)
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Scissors

Sizing:

  • Length of cowl: 32 inches
  • Width of cowl: 3 inches wide
  • Width of large rose: 1.5 inches
  • Width of smaller roses: 1 inch
  • Width of each leaf: 1/2 inch

Instructions for Cowl:

Chain 28

Row 1: In the 6th ch from the hook, work (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) all in the same chain.  *Skip 5 chains, then in the next ch, work (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc).  Repeat from * to last 4 ch.  Skip 3 ch, and in the last ch, work a dc.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn.  *Work (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) into the center of each fan from the previous row all the way across (see photo below).  Work a dc in the turning chain space.

Repeat row 2 until cowl is 32 inches long (or desired length).  Fasten off.

Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: In the center of the ring, work 6 dc, 4 sc, 1 tr, 4 sc. Join with a slip stitch to close leaf and fasten off. Keep tails intact for seaming to the cowl later.

Finishing & Assembly:

Sew roses and leaves to cowl with a tapestry needle as shown in the above photo using yarn tails.  I sewed the roses on first, then added the leaves to the outside edges of the “corsage”.  Weave in any ends that remain.

  3. I LOVE this pattern! But I cannot figure out how the buttons go on as it looks like one end is flipped up. Would like more details on button placemen and buttoning the cowl. Thanks!

  4. Thank you for the pattern. I thought I understood it perfectly until I looked at the picture. . .when you say "work into the center of each fan," do you mean the ch 3 space? Thanks!
