Pattern: Easy Picot Cowl

If you are looking for a super fast and cozy project, then this is it! I worked up this easy picot cowl in about half an hour with some leftover homespun yarn. It uses a P hook and super bulky yarn, so they are really easy to crank out! It’s the perfect beginner project, using the double crochet stitch. You can add the cute little picots around the bottom, or leave them out for an even easier project.

  • Lion Brand Homespun Thick and Quick yarn (6). Approx. 50 yards.
  • P/11.5mm Crochet Hook
  • Yarn Needle


This cowl is worked in rows and seamed together to form the cowl. The picots are added in the round at the end.


Ch 14

Row 1: 1 Dc in third Ch from hook and each Ch across. Ch2, Turn. (12 Dc) The Ch 2 does not count as a stitch.

Rows 2-20: 1 Dc in each St across. Ch 2, Turn. (12 Dc)

Fold your work in half, Sl St the first and last rows together (12 Sl St) to join. Turn your work correct side out.

Rotate your work, you will now be working in the round, inserting your hook into the ends of the rows.

Round 1: Ch 1, 3 Sc. Ch 3, work 1 Sl St back into the first Ch from the Ch 3 just made. 1 Picot made. *3 Sc, Ch 3, Sl St back into 1st Ch.* Repeat around.
