The “Bumpy Road Cowl” PatternPatterns-Cowls . Patterns-Scarves
Well, it is definitely a cold, rainy, dark, not nice day here at the lake. Fall has arrived….big time. And, with that, I’ve decided that it’s time for another beautiful cowl pattern!!!
I have named this cowl, “The Bumpy Road Cowl” for two reasons: 1. That is the name of the crochet stitch that I am using for it; and 2. This year of 2020 seems like it is nothing but a “Bumpy Road”.

This pattern is so very quick and easy!!! It uses a beautiful Super Bulky Yarn called “Buttercream Luxe Craft Alpaca” and is available at Joann’s! It is 80 % acrylic and 20% alpaca. The combination is just “delicious”, if you ask me!! As far as the care goes, it is machine washable. Dry flat and do not iron. The hook that I used is a Size N/9.00 mm.
You can whip this up so fast. 3 hours and it was done for me, including adding the beautiful buttons and working in the ends. I’m ready to wear it today!
I hope you try this pattern and if you do, be sure to post here in the comments or post your photos of your completed projects on Instagram with the hashtag #bumpyroadcowl and/or #lakeviewcottagekids.

Adult – Woman
Measurements of Cowl When Finished: Approximately 31 inches x 6.5 inches
- 1 skein Super Bulky Weight (#6) Buttercream Luxe Craft Alpaca Solids Yarn; Color: Taupe
- 4 Buttons of Your Choice (I used a 4 “1-inch” buttons)
- Crochet Hook, Size N/9,00 mm
- Small Yarn Needle (Used for working in loose yarn ends and for attaching the buttons.)
(I crochet pretty loosely. If you crochet tighter, you may want to adjust to a larger hook to get your desired size.)
Using the N Hook, Chain 18.
Row 1: In the second chain from the hook, work a single crochet. Work a single crochet in each of the chains across the row. Ch 2. Turn. (17sc)
Row 2: Work 3 dc in the base of the ch; *skip the next 3 sc, work (1 sc and 3 dc in the next sc)*. Repeat from * to * to the last 4 stitches. Skip 3 sc and work 1 sc in the last sc. Ch 2. Turn. (17 st)
Row 3: Work 3 dc in the base of the ch; *skip the next 3 dc, work (1sc and 3 dc) in the next sc*. Repeat from * to * across to the last st. Work 1 sc in the second ch of the turning Ch 2. Ch 2. Turn. (17 st)
Repeat Row 3 until your fabric measures approximately 30 inches.
When cowl measures 30 inches, work 1 dc in each stitch across the next row. (17 st)
Final Row: Work 1 sc in each stitch across the row. (17 st). Do not cut yarn.
Seaming Cowl: Match 2 short ends of cowl together and using a slip stitch seam together. To do this, place your hook under the “V” of one side and continue and place hook under “V” of the other side and work a slip stitch. Continue this across the width of the cowl. Ch 1.
Fasten off and cut yarn.
Turn cowl so that seam is on the inside.
Attach 4 buttons. (See photo.)
Enjoy your beautiful, and snuggly warm, cowl!!
