side view of husband wearing cowlI made this pattern for my husband. He has to work outside a lot and sometimes in blizzard conditions. He can't have scarf ends in the way of his power tools, so I thought a thick cowl would be better. He agreed!


It is somewhat snug fitting and therefore versatile. He likes to pull it up over his ears a lot to really shield him from the elements.
Best part, it's made with 3 strands of #4 Red Heart and a big ol' hook. That means you can whip this up in less than an hour! Have fun.

Total Time: Less than 1 hour

Yield: As many as you like


  • 11.5 mm crochet hook
  • around 300 yards #4 worsted weight yarn
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle for weaving in ends


  1. With 3 strands of yarn and a 11.5mm hook, ch 30. Join with a slip stitch in the first ch to make a ring.
