Crochet Ridged Cowl

Hi friends,

Happy New Year! Praying this year will be much better than 2020!

I decided to start off 2021 with a free crochet pattern. 🙂 This is a fun and easy pattern that works up in just a couple of hours in your choice of worsted weight yarn. I used I Love This Yarn in the beautiful Painted Canyon color way with an I/5.5mm hook to stitch up my cowl.

Crochet Ridged Cowl

I Love This Yarn in Painted Canyon – one 5 ounce (252 yards) skein

I/5.5mm hook

Stitches used US terms

Chain – ch

Foundation Double Crochet – fdc

Double Crochet – dc

Front Post Double Crochet – fpdc

Back Post Double Crochet – bpdc

Slip Stitch – ss

Note: ch 2 at beginning of row counts as 1st dc stitch.

Row 1: Work 29 fdc. Turn. (29 stitches)

Row 2: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st dc, dc in each stitch across. Turn. (29 stitches)

Row 3: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st dc, dc in next 3 stitches. fpdc in next stitch. *dc in next 4 stitches, fpdc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * 3 times. dc in last 4 stitches. Turn. (29 stitches)

Row 4: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st dc, dc in next 3 stitches. bpdc in next stitch. *dc in next 4 stitches, bpdc in next stitch* Repeat from * to * 3 times. dc in last 4 stitches. Turn. (29 stitches)

Repeat Rows 3 and 4 to desired length. My cowl measured about 31 inches before adding the last row.

Last Row: ch 2 (counts as 1st stitch). Skip 1st dc, dc in each stitch across. Turn. (29 stitches)

Fold scarf in half and ss ends together. Fasten off and weave in ends.

If you would like to make this an infinity scarf that you can wrap around twice, you’ll need about 10 ounces of yarn. Crochet until the scarf measures about 60 inches before adding the last row, then join the ends together.

  1. I used this yarn to make a wall hanging. It turned out great. Now you’ve made me want to buy more so that I can wear a painted canyon 🙂

      Hi Tammie, I used the Foundation Double Crochet Stitch to begin my cowl. Here’s a link to a great YouTube video on how to make that stitch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y__JXaQU8F0
      If you would rather start with chains, chain 31, then double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook and each remaining chain. Just be sure you have 29 double crochet stitches in the first row. (the 3 chains you skipped at the beginning count as a double crochet stitch). Hope this helps!
