Free Crochet Pattern…Marshmallow Lace Cowl!

The Marshmallow Lace Cowl is fun, bulky, and luxurious! A lovely Fiber Flux reader asked for a “deluxe” flower version of the Meringue Cowl…consider it done!  A cream lace cowl in the V-stitch is topped off by a large and fabulous flower, perfect for making a statement, while still staying cozy. It uses just one skein for the cowl part and yarn leftovers for the flower.  I’ve topped mine off with a button I made myself too (see below for how-to info).

  • 24 Inch Cowl Circumference
  • 6 Inch Cowl Height
  • 5 Inch Width for Flower


  • 1 Skein Super Bulky Yarn of your Choice (yarn shown is Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in the “Fisherman” colorway

  • 1 Button
  • Tapestry Needle

Instructions for Cowl:

(Cowl is worked lengthwise and seamed)

Ch 49 (To change circumference sizing, chain in multiples of 15+4).

Foundation Row: In the 4th chain from the hook, work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. *Skip two chains and then in the next ch, work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. Repeat from * to end.

Row 1: Turn, ch 3 and work dc, ch 1, dc in each of the chain 1 spaces from the previous row (center of each “V”). At the end of the row, finish with a dc in the last space (ch 3 turning space).

Repeat row 1 until desired width is reached.  Cowl shown is a total of 6 rows of stitch pattern, with yarn leftovers.

Seam and weave in any ends.  I left a long tail when I was finished and just used that to seam it together.

Instructions for Flowers:

(Make 2, one with an N hook and one with a P hook)

Ch 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3 then work 11 dc into the center of the ring.

Round 2: Chain 3 and in the first space, work (2 dc, then a sl st).  *Skip the next space.  In the next space work (3 dc, then a sl st) all in the same space.  Continue from * to end for a total of six petals. Fasten off with a slip stitch in the next space, then close round with a slip stitch.

Instructions for Flower Center:

Ch 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.

Round 1: Ch 3 then work 11 dc into the center of the ring.

Finishing and Assembly:

Layer flowers (large on bottom, smaller flower next, flower center next, button on top.  Sew all layers together with a tapestry needle and weave in any ends that remain.

  1. Wow this is super ! Thank you for such a beautiful pattern 🙂
    P.S. I've been reading your blog for a while, I just haven't commented yet I love it !

  2. So I made this yesterday with the largest hook I already had, which was K, and only had to add one extra section of 15 +4. Then I made wristlets using the same pattern 15+4 ch wide to match. They all turned out amazing! Since I still have some yarn left I think I will make your friendship boot cuffs to go along with the set. I can't wait to give this gift set to my aunt!

    Thank you so much for all your free patterns and tutorials! I have learned so much from your blog and made several projects and enjoyed all of them. You have really helped me in my journey to adopt a new lifestyle and gain a little more confidence in my abilities, which sounds silly, I know, but in a society where nobody really makes anything anymore I love being able to give my family and friends something truly from the heart. I just wanted to let you know what a positive thing you are doing and I hope you keep this up for a long time! 🙂

    Looking forward to many more projects!
