Over the last few weeks I have been receiving a lot of email requests for free cow crochet patterns. This post includes 20 free crochet cow patterns that you can use to make some very adorable cow projects.
Free Crochet Cow Patterns
I have to admit I have always loved cows and even collected things that were cow themed until I was in my twenties. Somehow my daughter Darla has the same fascination with the black and white beauties (including her own very large Cow Stuffy who is of course named Cow).
When I was searching online I also came across some adorable for sale cow crochet patterns and this is one of my favorites. This adorable Cow Baby Blanket will make the perfect baby shower gift!
This beautiful baby blanket pattern is designed by Aneta Izabela (Crochet Arcade). You can get her adorable Cow Blanket Pattern on Ravelry here > Cuddle and Play Cow Baby Blanket by Aneta Izabela and Etsy here. This baby blanket is 38 inches by 40 inches in size. You will need Super Bulky Weight yarn  and a 7 mm crochet hook. This pattern is available for purchase. You should also check out her other adorable patterns, including her Crochet Pig Baby Blanket and her Crochet Sheep Baby Blanket which are equally perfect for baby nursery gifts.
P.S. A few months ago Aneta did a guest post here and gifted us this pattern to share with you for free: Unicorn Cell Phone Neck Pouch
Free Crochet Cow Patterns
Each cute crocheted cow pattern included in this roundup is available as a free written pattern in American Crochet Terms. Some even include free downloadable PDFs and video tutorials and photo tutorials.
I’ve listed the yarn weights and crochet hook sizes that were used for each of the amigurumi cow projects, crochet hats, animal slippers and crochet baby toys patterns. Some of these crocheted cows were made with DK Light Weight Yarn , some with Medium Weight Yarn  and even one was made with Bulky Weight Yarn .
Some sewing is required for each of these amigurumi projects. You will also need supplies like a tapestry needle (yarn needle), safety eyes, polyfil stuffing, stitch markers, scissors, embroidery thread for the nostrils and small details (for some of the cows), black yarn, brown yarn (for the Highland Cow), white yarn, pink yarn and small amounts of other yarn colors. A few of the amigurumi cows also have crochet horns.
