Rachel Cowl

The Rachel cowl consists of a big granny triangle that goes all the way down to your belly and a snug collar. This crochet cowl is very comfortable and will keep you warm. It has a retro vibe and will top off your outfit this winter!

Crochet cowl

You’ll start the Rachel cowl from the center, increasing on each side in order to create a huge Granny triangle. After that you’ll make a snug collar and you finish with the border and edging.

The pattern is suitable for the adventurous beginner. I’ve made a photo tutorial to make it even easier. You will have some ends to weave in, but maybe this is an excellent opportunity to use up your scraps!

Granny stitch

The Granny stitch has this awesome retro vibe and is hipper than ever. For me as a crochet designer it’s very inspiring!

It has made a comeback and you see it everywhere. You see it on social media, in fashion shops, on the catwalk and in fashion magazines. We can make our own hip accessories! Brilliant!

I chose to change colour every row, but you can easily change the look of this cowl by playing with colours. Tip: make the cowl in one colour or in gradient yarn. This way you’ll have no ends to weave in!

I included my colour scheme in the pattern!

Yarn selection: Hobbii Amigo XL

I chose to work with a worsted weight yarn, Hobbii Amigo XL, in a variety of autumnal colours. As the DK version, this yarn doesn’t itch at all!! .

Amigo XL has double the thickness of Amigo and is very easy to work with. I love how fast it works up. It is soft and comfortable and is produced in 100% HB acrylic of a very high quality and comes in an enormous selection of colors.

The airy yarn will keep you warm and won’t get too heavy.

What I love about Amigo and amigo XL is that it can be machine washed at 30°C, perfect for everyday use. Colors and shape will hold up to wash after wash.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 2076-311). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/
