New Crochet Pattern Release | Come Bye Cowl

Are you ready for the changing of the seasons? It certainly feels like it's getting more Autumnal here; the leaves are being to change colour and the air is becoming cooler and crisper.

One of my favourite things to do in the fall, when it's nice weather, is to go out for a country wall. It's that time of year, however, when sometimes this means you need some nice woolly neckwear to keep you warm whilst you are out and about. That's where we come in! Allow us to introduce the Come Bye Cowl.


The inspiration behind this cowl is the basic command used in sheepdog training which is “Come-bye” which tells the dog to move clockwise. As this fun circular cowl incorporates a ‘houndstooth’ stitch the playful name seemed appropriate - plus we do love a link to sheep!

Worked in rows and rounds the houndstooth stitch creates a fabric with moderate drape, and the way this pattern is worked gives the ‘houndstooth’ a modern fresh look that I think crocheters will enjoy.

The pattern only uses simple stitches and is an easy stitch pattern to remember which makes it a great project to pick up and put down again - or to hook up whilst watching TV.

I used Scheepjes Colour Crafter yarn, which is 8ply, double knit, 100% Acrylic and comes in 100g balls. I made mine in Rotterdam (Shade 1063) grey, Weert (Shade 1001) white and Gouda (Shade 1081) yellow, but I think the cowl would look equally pretty worked in other colours.



This pattern is perfect for advanced beginners as it only uses easy stitches, or as a versatile update to an accessory collection for an intermediate crocheter! It's also adjustable so you can make it as large or small as you like. I wanted a bigger cowl that I could wrap round my neck a couple of times.

Now eventually this pattern will be available for purchase from her on our website, as well as our Ravelry, LoveCrafts or Etsy store in both UK and US Terminology. But because I currently have a broken computer it's only available in US terms on Ravelry. But I do have good news...

This pattern is also being featured as part of the E’Claire Makery Fall Fashion Blog Hop on Wednesday 30th September 2020. Find out how to grab a FREE printable PDF copy of the cowl below.
