Crochet Cowl Pattern (Urban Lace Cowl)
Pattern for attractive, easy-to-make, crochet infinity scarf /cowl.
I really like the way this crochet cowl turned out, and I had a lot of fun designing it. I call it “urban” because I think it has a stylish edge, despite its rather delicate and feminine nature. It is made from beautiful, affordable, extra fine, lace weight (two strands crocheted together), merino wool. It is very soft and machine washable!
This crocheted cowl / infinity scarf is surprisingly easy to make. It consists simply of chain stitches and single crochet stitches worked in the round.
This crochet scarf would obviously make a lovely gift for a woman, teen girl or little girl. I made it with my sister-in-law in mind. She loves wearing scarves and cowls and she particularly likes pastel colors. I began designing it for her TWO Christmas’s ago! Better late than never! She also wears a lot of silver jewelry, which I know will look fabulous with this cowl.
This crochet cowl / infinity scarf pattern is suitable for an intermediate crocheter. It uses standard US English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience.
I am available to answer questions, should you have any.
Thanks for stopping by.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.
It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.
As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).
It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).
When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!
Home is now Toronto in Canada.
Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
