Quick Gift Crochet Button Cowl, Free Pattern + Video Tutorial

Quick Gift Crochet Button Cowl

The Quick Gift Crochet Button Cowl is a beautiful neck wrap that features a lovely, yet super easy shell stitch.  A special button gives it a finishing touch.  Makes a great gift because there is no special sizing and can easily be paired with a hat or some mittens for a set too!

This project is part of the 12 Weeks of Gifting Series!  Each week from NOW to the end of December, I’ll be sharing a new pattern for something that is super easy and super quick to whip up.  We’ll be using the same yarn and same hook size for every single project, just switching up the colors a bit.  Many of these projects can be made in just one sitting too!

With the holiday season fast approaching, sometimes it’s hard to squeeze in the time needed to make handmade gifts for everyone on your list!  No worries, our 12 Weeks of Gifting Series to the rescue!  Click the link below for the full directory of projects:

Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work 2 dc.  *Skip two ch then work a sc in the next ch.  skip 2 ch and in the next ch, work 4 dc.  Repeat from * until there are 3 ch left on the row.  Skip the next two ch, and in the very last ch, work a sc.

Row 2:  Ch 3 and turn.  Work 2 dc in the sc from the previous row.  *Work a sc in the center space of the fan from the previous row (area in between the posts right in the center).  Work 4 dc in the sc in between the next two fans.  Repeat from * to the end of the row.  Work a sc in the turning chain space to finish the row.

Repeat row 2 until the piece is approximately 20 inches long or desired length.  To create the button loop, do not fasten off the yarn and ch 12.  Work a slip stitch at the base of the chain and fasten off yarn.  

On the other end, sew button to the opposite corner on the bottom edge (where you began with the starting chain) using a matching piece of yarn.

Weave in any ends that remain and your quick gift crochet button cowl is complete!
