Free Crochet Cowl Pattern with Textured Waffle Stitch

Sharing is caring!

This free crochet pattern is called the Waffle Cowl that was created using the Waffle stitch. You will not only receive a free crochet pattern but also get a full tutorial on the beautiful and versatile waffle stitch.

For this pattern, I used the yarn Izaac Mizrahi Craft by Premier Yarns which I found at Michael’s in the color Algonquin. I used the same yarn for another one of my patterns, which is called Hubby’s Home Beanie. It became popular very fast. So I am pretty sure this Waffle Cowl will catch on as well.

I also used the same yarn, but a different color for the Everyday Bean Beanie. Another super easy and beginner-friendly crochet beanie.

The wonderful thing with this yarn is that you do not need to use very challenging stitch patterns because the variegated yarn makes the pattern come alive.

Furthermore, it has been requested by my followers, that they not only wanted additional patterns using this beautiful bulky yarn but also for me to use and create a video tutorial on the waffle stitch.

Well, your wish is my command. I love creating patterns and teaching stitch patterns that my followers request. I know I can always count on you when I run out of ideas.

Crochet Cowl – Waffle Stitch Details

This Waffle Cowl can for sure be considered an easy pattern as it has 2 rows that repeat over and over again.

In fact, you can use this pattern and even create an infinity waffle scarf or a simple waffle scarf with it. I have the instructions for it in the pattern.

The pattern for the Waffle Cowl is finished up by adding some beautiful buttons to it. I used some simple and light wood buttons that seem to fit the theme of being light just like this cowl is.

The Waffle Cowl sure is a very light, but warm and cozy cowl that not only makes you look and feel pretty when wearing it but also feels super light. You might totally forget that you are wearing it at all.

So be sure to watch the video tutorial for the waffle stitch below as well, plus I have a brand new tutorial for the Waffle stitch HERE. I show you exactly how to create this beautiful Waffle Cowl.

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Now fold the rectangle you just made into a cowl, like you see on the picture below. Next, sew on the buttons on the layer below the top. Be sure the buttons you choose fit thru the spaces between the double crochets.

If you prefer making this Waffle Cowl into an infinity scarf, then you will need to add about 20 more rows. However, if you prefer to make this Waffle Cowl into a Waffle Scarf instead, then you will have to have about 60 -100 rows (depending how long you want it to be).
