Rustic Chunky Button Cowl – Free Crochet Pattern
Welcome to the Scarf of the Month Club!
We have 3 new gorgeous scarf/cowl patterns for you for the month of July!
If you are new to the Scarf of the Month Club, it is a series of free scarf/cowl patterns that are created by The Stitchin’ Mommy (me!) and Oombawka Design. Every month, Rhondda and I will each share one free crochet pattern for a scarf, infinity scarf, or cowl/neckwarmer, through December 2016. Plus, as a bonus, we have some amazing Mystery Designers that will also be providing free scarf patterns. By December, you will have 36 scarf/cowl patterns to choose from to make as gifts or create for yourself!
If you have already started making the patterns in this series, don’t forget to share your progress with us by adding Ravelry Project Pages for the scarves you make! Each pattern post will include a specific pattern link to Ravelry so you can add your own project pages!
We would also love to see your projects on Instagram! Tag us on Instagram at @thestitchinmommy and/or @oombawkadesign and use the hashtag #ScarfoftheMonthClub to share your progress with us!
Also, check out our Facebook Group, Crochet With Us where can share your progress, ask questions, and get help!

I’m a beginner what does into the turning chain mean please?
Hi Linda, the turning chain is the chain at the beginning of the previous row. In this pattern, the turning chain is the ch-3. I hope that helps!!
Tried to make copy of “Free” rustic cowl pattern. The usual happened that makes me HATE these blog/websites. 25 pages of nothing but the ads. Total waste of paper and time. If you offer free patterns make them easy to download and copy. I don’t use them except for personal use so I really resent all the shinangins that I have to go through to get a pattern
Hi Sherrie. The patterns are actually very easy to download if you use the printfriendly button at the top of the post. Just click on the light green icon with the printer symbol at the top of the post. Alternately, you can go to printfriendly.com and paste the link to print or PDF. If you are printing the regular way (Ctrl + P or File > Print), when the print dialogue box pops up, you can click on the box that says “Simplify Page” and it will take out all of the extra things that you don’t wish to have. You can also select which pages you want to print so you don’t have to print them all. I also offer an ad-free PDF for a small fee in my Ravelry, Etsy, and Craftsy shops.
