A Cute, Fun, Unique, Sure to Make You SMILE Cowl!
The mustache cowl is all those wonderful things and is a free pattern to you from
This fun cowl is quick to make and would be fun in any colors. I personally like the vibrant and bright colors for the dreary days of winter. Seriously, we haven’t seen sunshine for almost 3 weeks. I needed something bright and colorful to work on!
Save this pattern in your Ravelry Account for easy access.
For the cowl, it is a very basic crochet pattern and can easily be adjusted for any size. I made the child size but alternative stitch counts in parenthesis would be for an adult size.
The Cowl Pattern:
For your gauge check use Hook K = 9 rows and 12 hdc = 4 inches square
Using Worsted Weight Yarn and Crochet Hook K (6.5 mm)
Work 65 (80) foundationless hdc, join in first hdc making sure not to twist, this will form a ring (tutorial here
-also know as a foundation hdc- I know that doesn’t make much sense)
Row 2-18 (24): Ch 2, hdc in each st around, join, after last row is completed,
Fasten off and bury all ends, You will need to also sew/join the bottom of the first and last hdc from the foundation row.
Laying flat the completed measurements for the cowl are:
Child Size = 11 inches wide X 8 inches high
Adult Size = 15 inches wide X 10 1/2 inches high
For the Mustache I used the pattern by Jessica Chong on Ravelry
. Again I used worsted weight yarn but used a crochet hook K (6.5 mm) instead of what was recommended. The pattern is very easy to follow and works up quick.
I sewed on the mustache to the cowl so that the top of the mustache was just below the 3rd row from the top (the mustache curl tips was about 1 1/2 rows from the top).
Look how cute and easy they turned out. This pattern is sure to be a hit for whoever receives the finished cowl and will turn heads and make all who see it smile!
