Free Crochet Pattern for Butterscotch Cowl

I don’t like things that are too tight around my neck so I tend not to wear cowls, but I love this crochet pattern. The yarn is soft and it has such nice drape that it does not feel overpowering and the lacy stitches make it light. I wear it under a coat for a little extra warmth, but mostly I wear it for style over tops and jackets.

    I’m sorry, I don’t have a video. Think of it as working a row and pulling in stitches from the other end to join them together.

  2. Kristina Perdue

    The joining row is really confusing. Can you please clarify it? Video perhaps or pictures? Im super confused

    Love the pattern. Quick and easy. At the end of row 3 I did 2dctog. It evened up the posts on both sides.

    Is there a diagram for the butter scotch cowl.
    Thank you

    Yes, you are correct, I’ve updated the pattern. Thank you for letting me know.

  13. Hi, thanks for a lovely pattern. I am struggling with the instruction in Row 3, dc in next ch 1 space. That would mean dc twice in each group of 3 dc in Row 2, with 4ch between each? Then the number of stitches per row would increase a lot. So I guess you mean to dc in the central dc of each group of 3?
    Thanks in anticipation.

    I’m not sure. This was a no name brand I found in my local yarn store in the economy bin but I thought it looked perfect for what I wanted. Sorry 🙁

    What is the kind and color of the yarn you used? I love that
