Top of the Flock: 5 cowls to keep you toasty!

If you get a little bored making a whole scarf, cowls are a great alternative. They’re a unique and cosy trend, they look great, and crochet up quite quickly. Here are five of our favourite patterns from our Flock members.

Warm & Toasty Winter Cowl by Hopeful Honey

Warm & Toasty Winter Cowl by Hopeful Honey


Made from super chunky/bulky yarn, this cowl was created by Olivia of Hopeful Honey because she thought it might be “socially ‘weird’ to walk around everywhere with a ginormous blanket wrapped around your shoulders.” Cowls are the next best thing!


Cowgirl Meets Minneapolis Cowl by The Firefly Hook



This stylish cowl by The Firefly Hook combines influences from the American West with the urban style of Minneapolis. The pattern uses Madelinetosh Pashmina yarn in the wonderfully-named shade of “Whiskey Barrel.” This blend of 75% superwash merino wool, 15% silk, and 10% cashmere is sure to be incredibly comfortable.


Zuma Cowl by Potter & Bloom


Zuma Cowl by Emma Potter


The Zuma Cowl by Potter & Bloom is a great cowl for beginner crocheters, or anyone looking for something quick-and-easy to whip up. Using super chunky/bulky yarn, this pattern combines four granny squares for a great-looking cowl.


Broomstick Lace Cowl by Petals to Picots


Broomstick Lace Cowl by Petals to Picots


I love the look and pattern of this cowl, achieved through the broomstick lace stitch. This stitch is quite unique, as it uses a crochet hook and a large knitting needle, which can also be replaced by (you guessed it!) a broomstick! The three buttons add a nice finishing touch to this elegant pattern from Petals to Picots.


One Skein Cowl by Little Doolally


One Skein Cowl by Little Doolally


This wonderfully-coloured cowl by Little Doolally uses just one skein of Malabrigo Worsted 100% merino wool yarn. This simple pattern is great for a quick gift, and being merino wool, you know it’s going to warm and comfy!
