Maybe Matilda: Chunky Scalloped Cowl Crochet Pattern (and yarn giveaway!)

Chunky Scalloped Cowl Crochet Pattern (and yarn giveaway!)

I don’t think I will ever, for as long as I live, get tired of wearing scarves and cowls. They have so much going for them—they’re an easy burst of color or pattern or texture to amp up an outfit, the perfect transition pieces to carry you into or out of cooler weather, and if you crochet (or knit!) they are so quick and easy and inexpensive to make yourself. Lion Brand  invited me to take part in their #scarfie project (selfie + handmade scarf = scarfie!) by sharing a photo of myself in a scarf I made, and it was the perfect push to do something I’ve been meaning to do for a few weeks anyway: get myself all set for fall with a new cozy cowl. And this one I came up with is peeeerfect, if I may say so myself.

I love me a scallop, that’s for sure. I toss them on just about everything (baby blankets, hats, tops), so naturally I couldn’t resist making myself a scalloped cowl. It had to be done. And I was happy to do it.

Free crochet pattern to make this cute chunky cowl! Perfect beginner project, quick and easy.

I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick (color: Grass), so it was very fast to work up (there are only 10 rows here, people), and my cowl is so thick and warm and chunky. Perfect for chilly fall days.

I’d like to take a little minute here to predict that it will take my dad about 12 minutes from the moment I post this to call me with a triumphant I told you so!!! because after yeeeeeeeears of mocking him for pairing denim pants with a denim/chambray top, I’ve crossed to the dark side and I have no regrets.

On to the pattern! Feel free to add or eliminate chains for a looser or more snug fit (just chain in multiples of 4), and add or eliminate rows to make your cowl ‘taller/shorter.’
