- This pattern is written in US terms.
- All stitches are worked through both loops unless otherwise noted.
- Ch-3 at the beginning of each row counts as a dc.
- Sizing will vary depending on how tightly or loosely you crochet. Please check your gauge before starting this project.
- This pattern is worked flat and buttoned to form a cowl. Alternately, you can seam the ends together to make a regular cowl.
- Crossed Double Crochet Stitch Tutorial (also known as the X-Stitch)
Row 1: 1 sc into the 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc into each st across, turn. (22)
Row 2: Ch 3 (count as 1 dc here and throughout), sk the first st, *sk the next st, 1 dc into the next st, work 1 dc into the previously skipped st; Repeat from * across, 1 dc into the last st, turn. (22)
Row 3: Ch 3, sk the first st, *sk the next st, 1 dc into the next st, work 1 dc in the previously skipped st; Repeat from * across, 1 dc into the top of the t-ch, turn. (22)
Row 4-29: Repeat Row 3. (22)
Row 30: Ch 1, 1 sc into each st across, working last sc into t-ch. (22)
Fasten off, weave all ends. (Note: If you want to seam the cowl, leave a long tail to sew the two ends together)
- Fold the cowl so that one end overlaps the other.
- Arrange your buttons on the left side of the cowl (it will be the right side when you are wearing it), between rows 2 and 3.
- Using extra yarn or a needle and thread, sew the buttons onto the cowl.
- There are no need for button holes since the stitch pattern created spaces that you can slip the buttons through.
You can wear this cowl several ways which is always fun. With no button holes, you can basically button it up any way you like!

That color is gorgeous! I love the idea of no buttonholes to work – and the buttons you used set it off nicely. Great design!
Thank you so much Jenny! I love when I don’t have to work buttonholes either. Believe it or not, it wasn’t my intention to make it a button cowl but then I saw the nature of the stitch and figure it would be really great 🙂
This is such a beautiful design. Thank you!
Thank you so much Rebeckah! 🙂
Thank you Deborah! It’s one of my favorite cowl designs so far 🙂
Seems nice and easy, I love crochet that is also useful, comfortable and beautiful at the same time!
Thank you! It’s a fairly easy pattern and works up very fast 🙂
