Spring Mesh Lace Cowl
The free Spring Mesh Lace Cowl pattern makes a wonderful light accessory to any spring outfit. Have you ever looked at a product online or in a store and thought, “I can make that”! That is exactly where this Spring Mesh Lace Cowl came from. I saw an infinity scarf pop up in my Pinterest feed over and over again and I just loved it, but instead of grabbing my wallet I grabbed my crochet hook. I already had the same color lace yarn in my stash that I bought on a whim because I liked the color.
This spring cowl is made with a simple mesh stitch and finished by crocheting the ends together and adding a light fringe to the edges. I used Buttercream Mohair yarn in the color pumpkin for my cowl, but any fine weight yarn will work for this pattern. This cowl is very easy to work on. After the first row, you will be working into chain spaces and that greatly increases your crocheting speed. This project is good for beginners to experts, because it only uses a chain stitch, single crochet and slip stitch. Only the last row is a little tricky because you will be alternating between crocheting into the last row worked and the first row worked. I will provide written instructions and a diagram to make this easier. I will also be available to provide advice through the comments below. If you would like to make this pattern with a medium size yarn, I have a similar pattern using Redheart With Love Stripes coming soon. Now, on to the pattern.
Buttercream Mohair or another fine yarn (56g or 2 oz)
Hook Size D 3.25mm
Stitches and Abbreviations
Ch – Chain
Sc – Single Crochet
St(s) – Stitch(es)
Slst- Slip stitch
This cowl measures 26 inches around and 9 inches wide. It is designed to be folded down when worn. The piece that inspired this cowl was an infinity scarf and this pattern can be lengthened to make an infinity scarf by adding extra rows.
Ch 77, turn.
Row 1: Sc in the 9th ch from the hook, (ch 4, skip the next 3 ch, sc in the next ch) repeat from (to) 17 times. The last sc will be in the last ch.
Row 2- 115: Ch 8, turn, sc in the first ch 4 space. (ch 4, sc in the next ch 4 space) repeat fro (to) 17 times.
Line up the last worked row with the first worked row. Make sure that the scarf is not twisted. The last row will be worked into both the first row and row 115. I have provided written instructions for the last row, as well as a diagram.
Row 116: Ch 2, sc into the first ch 4 space of the first row. (ch 2, sc in the next ch 4 space of the last worked row, ch 2 sc in the next ch 4 space of the first row) repeat from (to) until you reach the last ch 4 space. Ch 4, slst to the first ch made of the scarf. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
To finish the scarf you can add fringe to each loop on the side of the scarf. I cut 236 8 inch pieces of yarn and used two pieces of yarn for each loop. Take two 8 inch pieces of yarn and fold them in half. Weave the looped half through a loop in the side of the scarf and pull the ends of the piece through the loop and pull tight. Repeat this for every loop on both sides of the scarf. Now you are all finished!
