Crochet à la Brioche Cowl Crochet Pattern




Every this-time-of-a-year since I released knitted Meringue Cowl pattern,  I receive so many requests for a crochet version. Well, here are several techniques to emulate Brioche knitting, like single crochet worked in back loops for example. But my most favorite method is working in third loop of half double crochet.

So, I wrote Crochet à la Brioche Scarf pattern explaining 3rd loop hdc stitch and “tested” it a pretty simple and such fast to crochet scarf project. Recently, I received several requests for cowl option. Thank you so much for your interest, it’s my absolute pleasure to design for you!! So, let me introduce…




Crochet à la Brioche Cowl

A Brioche (so called from its resemblance in shape to the well known French cake of that name) may be as easily worked in crochet as in knitting. With a little trick you can transform regular half double crochet stitches into knit-like stitches, that are also very elastic!
These reversible soft ribs will hug your neck and keep it toasty warm all fall, winter and into spring. There will be few times you won’t find an excuse to wear your à la Brioche Cowl!
Opt for bamboo or cotton blends for fall and spring. A perfect gift idea too!
