Crochet Pattern - Simple V-stitch cowl and wrist warmers

Hello! Just popping in today to share this very simple V-stitch cowl and wrist warmers pattern.  I designed this pattern around three years ago now when it was featured in my Inside Crochet Column – doesn’t time fly! 

Anyway, it really is a beautifully simple pattern and perfect if you are a new to crochet or just fancy something quick and easy to make.  The pattern is easily adaptable so make them as long/wide as you wish.

While I was searching my files for the pattern I came across these photos I had taken of the original cowl and wrist warmers. Just look at how small Teddy was....awww they made me smile so much!

Simple V-Stitch Cowl and Wrist Warmers

Yarn:  I originally designed this pattern using Artesano Aran (50% superfine alpaca, 50% Peruvian highland wool), but any aran weight wool will do. I have recently been making these in Rico Essentials Alpaca chunky using a 5.5mm hook so just play with whatever yarn/hook you want and adjust the starting chain to fit.

Hook: 5 mm

Notes:

Pattern written in UK crochet terms.

Cowl and wrist warmers are worked in unturned rounds. You can add a new colour each round by joining it in the last sl stitch of the round you have just worked or if easier just begin as in round 1 with a chain 4 and 1 treble in the same stitch.

The length of the cowl can be modified by adjusting the starting chain in multiples of 3 and the height by working more or less rounds.
