Sharing is caring!

This downtown button cowl crochet pattern is quick to make and so much fun to crocheted for those of you girls who weren’t ready for big crochet projects like a sweater or a poncho.

Can you imagine that just we add a classic wooden button to the simple-looking cowl, then they suddenly turn out to be very cute and modern.

Surely the button is a statement of this simple cowl. Previously, I have seen lots of pretty crochet accessories with grey colors. So I want to try out to crocheted with a neutral color tone.

This crochet cowl scarf is not only stylish for ladies to wear around town, but it’s also a great unisex cowl for everyone.

The easiest button cowl crochet pattern.

This beginner-friendly buttoned cowl not only works up quickly but also perfect for less experienced crocheters.

This cowl pattern only takes a few basic crochet stitches, half double crochet, and slip stitch alternate all the way through the entire rectangle.

Yep, that’s right, this crochet cowl with buttons is made from only one rectangle! Super simple.

Best yarn for this crochet cowl scarf.

To crochet a cozy button cowl, I used worsted weight yarn, 100% acrylic in 10 ply, or you girl could go for 5 chunky weight, and It’s taken me only one evening to complete it.

If you are a crochet ninja like me, probably takes the same amount of time to complete, but if you are a baby level, maybe take two evenings to finish them. ^^

If I am understanding the pattern correctly, you do not skip any stitches at the beginning of the rows. You go into the first stitch correct? And each row ends with a slip stitch and turning chain.

Are the buttons just for decoration? Also are ends sewn together so cowl has to go over your head rather than using buttons to fasten
