The countdown is on! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am READY for 2021. My 2021 Here We Come Cowl is EASY and can be crocheted to any width or height you wish.
This is a one-ball/cake project. I’ve included 2 ways for you to finish your cowl. If you don’t want to bother with a button closure, I have included directions to make this into a basic cowl (with the Basic Cowl Edging #2). If you do want to make the Button Cowl, use the Button Cowl Edging # 1.
Pop by next week for the matching hat pattern (you guessed it… 2021 Here We Come Hat) – I feel like rounding out 2020 with some easy and quick projects is exactly what we need to do!
If you share your finished scarf on Instagram, share it with #ODCMakers so I can see it too! I check for this hashtag frequently and add new finished projects to my Instagram Stories!
Remember this project is just one of the three brand-new scarf patterns today!

- Yarn: Yarnspirations. Caron Swirl Cakes. 8 oz (227 g) and 252 yds (230 m). 77% Acrylic / 23% Wool. Bulky Weight Yarn . Hand wash. Lay flat to dry.
- Colors: 1 skeins in Gold Fusion.
- Hook: 8 mm (L). I used this hook. ( save 15% at Furls with code: ODC15 )
- Finished Project Yardage: Cowl: 8 oz (227 g) / 252 yds (230 m)
- Scissors, Yarn Needle, Stitch Marker
Cowl height approximately 12 inches X 42 inches length
Approximately 8 rows per 4 inches and 4 sets of (sc, ch 2, sc) per 4-inches
You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size, and amount of yarn used for your project will also be different.
US Terminology used
beg – beginning
BL – back loop
ch2sp – chain 2 space
ch3sp – chain 3 space
g – grams
m – meters
R – row
RS – right side
Rnd – round
rem – remaining
rep – repeat
sk – skip
st/sts – stitch/stitches
oz – ounces
WS – wrong side
yds – yards
* to **– Repeat the instructions between the asterisks the number of times indicated. This repeat will contain multiple instructions.
 – at the end of the row – the total number of stitches
() – important notes AND sets of stitches to be worked within one stitch, or space
- This easy to crochet stitch pattern works up quickly using Bulky Weight Yarn .
- Stitch multiple is 3 + 3. This means chain any number of stitches. Check that the total number of chains you made can be divided by 3 equally. Then add 3 chains. You can make this to any width and height you want.
- I work in the back bump of the starting chain because it allows the front and back loops of the stitch to remain and by doing so it gives the foundation chain more elasticity (stretch). You can alternately work under the bl of the chain if you prefer.
2021 Here We Come Cowl Pattern Instructions
This cowl is crocheted back-and-forth in rows. The edging is added immediately following the final row.
Using your 8 mm (L) hook (or size required for gauge) and leaving an 6-8 inch yarn tail:
R1: RS: Ch 110, sk the first ch, 1 sc in the next ch. *Sk 2 ch, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the next ch**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 2 sts. Sk the next ch, 1 sc in the last ch. Ch 1, turn. [2 sc, 36 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc)]
R2-R21: 1 sc in the first sc, sk the next sc, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in ch2sp. *Sk the next 2 sc, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in ch2sp**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 2 sc. Sk 1 sc, 1 sc in the last sc. Ch 1, turn. [2 sc, 36 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc)]
R22: 1 sc in the first sc, sk the next sc, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in ch2sp. *Sk the next 2 sc, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in ch2sp**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 2 sc. Sk 1 sc, 1 sc in the last sc. Do not finish off. Continue to edging of your choice below. [2 sc, 36 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc)]
If you want to make this a simple cowl without the button closure please proceed to the Edging #2 Section at the end of the post. If you are adding the button closure like mine please use the Edging #1 Section.
Button Cowl Edging #1
Rnd 1: Continue from R22, (ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the last sc (*note* you already have 1 sc in this st). Rotate your work to continue working along the side edge of the project. [1 set of (ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 2, 1 sc)]
Sk 1 row end, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the next row end**. Rep from * to ** across to the last row end. (1 sc, ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the last row end (*note* this is the corner). Rotate your work to continue working along the bottom of the foundation row. [10 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc), 1 set of [1 sc, ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 2, 1 sc]
Sk 1 ch, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the next ch. *Sk 2 chs, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the next ch**. Rep from * to ** across to the ch1sp. Sk the ch1sp, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the last sc (*note* this is the corner). Rotate your work to continue working along the side of the project. [36 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc), 1 set of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 2, 1 sc)]
Sk 1 row end, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in the next row end**. Rep from * to ** across to the last row end. You already have 1 sc in this stitch (the one you made at the beg of R22). (Ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 1) in the last row end (*note* this is the corner). Finish off with an invisible join worked into the very next sc (the same sc that is sharing this corner). [10 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc), 1 set of [1 sc, ch 2, 1 hdc, ch 1]
Add buttons to your cowl as shown in the following images.
Proceed to the Finishing Instructions
Basic Cowl Edging #2 (for a basic cowl without the buttons)
After you complete R22 of the cowl, finish off leaving about 15-inches of yarn. Thread your yarn on your yarn needle and using a whip-stitch seam, seam the two side-edges of the project together to form a tube.
Now we will add the edging.
R1: 1 sc in the first sc, sk the next sc, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in ch2sp. *Sk the next 2 sc, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in ch2sp**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 2 sc. Sk the last 2 sc. Finish off and join with an invisible join in the first sc of the round. [1 sc, 36 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc)]
Rotate your project to work into the base of the foundation row (R1). With the WS of your project facing, join your yarn in the sc.
R2: 1 sc in the first ch, sk the next ch, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in next ch. *Sk the next 2 ch, (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc) in next ch**. Rep from * to ** across to the last 2 chs. Sk the last 2 chs. Finish off and join with an invisible join in the first sc of the round. [1 sc, 36 sets of (1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc)]
Weave in any remaining ends.
