The Sweet Potato Pie Crochet Cowl is a chunky, super easy to stitch up cowl that is cozy for fall and all the way into winter. Worked in only 7 quick rounds, it is a great pattern for knocking out some gifts on your list, craft shows, and shops too! Beautiful and fun puff stitches give texture, while easy as pie (pun intended) double crochets frame them in nicely. Fun to make and fun to wear!
Watch the full video tutorial on how to make the Sweet Potato Pie Crochet Cowl step by step:
This cowl looks super cute is so many color combinations too…here’s a little peek of the “raspberry” I made in the video tutorial:
- 3/4 ball of Wool Ease Thick and Quick (Main color/color A)
- 1/4 ball of Wool Ease Thick & Quick (Puff stitch round, color B)
- 10.0 mm crochet hook
- Tapestry needle
Note: If you need to substitute yarn, look for a “6” on the yarn weight scale, super bulky, that also recommends a 9.0 mm hook. We’ll be using a 10 mm hook, but this yarn weight works great for this cowl.
- 6.5 Inches Tall
- 32 Inch Circumference
- Color A (pumpkin shown in photos, raspberry shown in video)
- Color B (cream shown in photos, blossom/light pink shown in video)
Note: Round 4 is the puff stitch round. To make a puff stitch, wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (3 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up another loop (5 loops on your hook), wrap yarn around hook and draw up a loop (7 loops on your hook). Wrap yarn around hook one more time and bring it through all 7 loops on your hook.
With color A, ch 46, join in the furthest ch from the hook with a sl st.
Round 1 (color A): Ch 3, then work a dc into each ch. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 2 (color A): Ch 3, then work a dc into each st. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 3 (color A): Repeat round 2
Round 4 (color B): Ch 3, then work a (puff stitch, ch 1) in each stitch. (see notes above to learn how to work this stitch or follow along with the video) Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 5 (color A): Ch 3, then work a dc into the first space. Continue around, working a dc in between each puff stitch. Join to close round with a sl st.
Round 6 (Color A): Repeat round 2
Round 7 (color A): Repeat round 2.
Fasten off and weave in and ends that remain.
