Introducing our latest design, the Paige Bandana Cowl—a crochet pattern and tutorial.



8 DC rows and 18 DCs = 6”x 6” Square


Finished piece measures approx. 10.5” along top of cowl and 11.5” down the center from the top to the tip.  This measurement is for 18 rows of bandana and 8 rows of cuff.

Pattern Notes:

Chain 2 at the beginning does count as a dc.

When working the texture rows, be sure to skip a stitch after each bean stitch worked because to finish off the bean stitch, you must chain 1 which creates an extra stitch, so in order to keep the balance, skip a stitch under the chain 1 and work your cross stitch in the next 2 stitches (this will make more sense when you get to the texture rows and see it).


Dc—Double crochet
XS—Cross Stitch
BS—Bean Stitch
*to*–Repeat the instructions written between the two *
