If you are in the mood for a quick and easy crochet pattern, then look no further than a crochet cowl!

Crochet cowls have to be one of the most satisfying projects to make – there is no shaping, most crochet cowl patterns use just 1-2 skeins of yarn, and they make great gifts (if you can bear to part with it once you’re done!)

In this post you’ll find a selection of crochet cowl patterns from my favorite crochet designers. There is a variety of shapes, sizes and yarn weights so you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy 🙂

For each of the projects below, I list the pattern format as well as the recommended yarn. This allows you to see at a glance what you might be able to use from your stash.

Now, let’s get crocheting!
