I wish I could knit, but I can’t. I don’t know why, I tried it as a kid but I just don’t seem to have the ability to deal with two needles. Seems like I’m better off with my crochet hook. So if you ever wanted an item that looks like knit but is actually made out of crochet stitches than this is the right pattern for you :)

Fake Knit Cowl Pattern

You’ll need

  • chunky yarn (I used Hayfield Bonus Chunky for mine)
  • 10 mm hook
  • tapestry needle


ch = chain

hdc = half double crochet (US term); half treble crochet (htr, UK term)

In my patterns UK terms are always given in brackets.


Row 1: Ch 122

Row 2: Hdc (htr) in third chain from the hook, Hdc (htr) till end of ch, ch 2 turn

Row 3: Hdc (htr) in backloops only till end of row, ch 2 turn

Row 4-11: repeat row 3

Slip stitch wrong sides together to form a cowl, fasten off. Weave in ends.


I would love to see a picture how your Cowl turned out!

Happy Crocheting!

I’m San and I’m the voice behind Loopsan. I’m a scientist by day (oh-no nerd alarm ;-)) but at night I turn into a crafter with heart. I love to crochet, bake, travel, keep memories in photographs and love everything DIY.
