Colour My World ~ Basic Multi-Coloured Cowl Pattern

Colour is absolutely AMAZING! I mean can you imagine a life without all it's different shades of blues, purples, pinks and greens? It would be incredibly dull... Thankfully we've all been blessed with a bountiful array of beautiful colours that we can enjoy every single day!

So that's my random thought of the day, which happened to inspire this project/pattern. These three colours were laying next to each other in my nest of yarns, and they looked so pretty together that of course I just HAD to crochet something!
Hope you all enjoy this pattern!

What You'll Need:
6.00 Crochet Hook
8ply Yarn {I used 3 different colours}
Wool/Tapestry Needle

Finished Size:
Roughly 35 inches around and 8 inches wide.

These are the colours I used. 
{You can use different colours, and in any order at all}
Colour 1 ~ Ruby
Colour 2 ~ Eggshell White
Colour 3 ~ Sapphire Blue 

Using Colour 1, start of by crocheting 110 Chains. Slip Stitch into first chain to join them together in a round. But be careful NOT to twist your chains when doing this.
Row 1, 2~ Colour 1, Chain 2 and crochet Half Double Crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch into the top of chain 2.
Row 3~ Colour 2, Chain 2 and crochet Half Double Crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch into the top of chain 2.
Row 4, 5~ Colour 3, Chain 2 and crochet Half Double Crochets all around. Join with a slip stitch into the top of chain 2.
Row 6~ Same as row 3.
Row 7, 8~ Same as row 1 and 2.
Row 9~ Same as row 3.
Row 10, 11~ Same as row 4 and 5.
Row 12 ~Same as row 3.
Row 13, 14~ Same as row 1 and 2.
Row 15~ Same as row 3.
Row 16, 17~ Same as row 4 and 5.
Row 18~ Same as row 3.
Row 19, 20~ Same as row 1 and 2.
Row 21~ Same as row 3.
Row 22, 23 ~ Same as row 4 and 5.
Row 24~ Same as row 3.
Row 25, 26 ~ Same as row 1 and 2.
Fasten off, and weave in any loose ends.

If you did crochet this, please post a photo of your creation onto my Facebook Page, I'd love to see it! It always brightens my day when one of your post something you made from my blog :)
Hope you all enjoyed this pattern!
Have a lovely day crocheting and crafting everyone!


  1. When I read your title I thought it said a multi coloured cow!!!!! I was expecting to see a multicoloured stuffed toy!
    But this is much better, I will definitely be making one of these cowls (or more!)
    So many colours to choose from.....

    1. Naww thanks Brenda! :) My bannister was the closest thing I could get to using a dress form lol It's actually worked really well for my scarves 'modelling career' :)

  5. Is it possible to make a video? I've been trying to figure out how to make these, and it's not going so well haha

    1. Well I'm currently infected with the flu, so a video is out of the question at the moment, sorry! But I went and found this video for you on how to crochet a half double crochet cowl! Hope this helps! :)
      If you're still having difficulty just search on youtube for a few more videos, they're bound to have something that you're looking for :)

  6. By 8 ply yarn do you mean the DK, baby weight yarn like you use in the beret and slouchy hat? or like a really thick yarn?

    1. thank you! (for both questions!)

  7. also, (same person as above) about how many yards did you use? do you think one skein would be enough (if we didn't stripe the cowl?)

    1. You'd need at least 2 skeins. One will probably not be enough.

  8. Hi Olivia,

    What a cute project! I love it so much that I decided to feature it in our roundup of DIY cowl designs! Check it out here:

    Have a great day!
