Haula Cowl Free Crochet Pattern | KT and the Squid

This is the Haula Cowl! I recently got some Brava yarn from Knit Picks to review. I felt inspired so I decided to make a little cowl out of it. 

The great thing about this cowl is it only takes one skein! That’s about 218 yards. It’s also really quick. I made mine in one evening! The pattern is just one size but you could easily pick up another skein and add more bulk if you wanted.

I just love these cowl/shawl hybrids. The have all the bulk in the front but less in the back so you look less like a hunch back. It’s a really fun shape to play with!


One size

20″ opening at the top, 35″ opening at the bottom, 12″ tall in the front.


1 skein of Knit Picks Brava in Peapod (100% acrylic; 100g/ 218 yards; medium weight)

Yarn Samplers From Knit Picks


I/5.5mm hook (or hook to obtain gauge)


Please read all instructions before beginning.

This cowl is worked flat for the first 18 rows and then in the round for the remaining rounds.


14 dc by 7 rows in pattern = 4” square (blocked)


Ch = chain
St = stitch
Dc = double crochet


Row 1: Make an adjustable ring, ch 2 (does NOT count as a st), 6 dc in the ring, pull the ring closed. -6
Row 2: Ch 2 (does NOT count as a st from here on), turn, 2 dc in each dc across. -12
Row 3: Ch 2, turn, *(dc, ch 1) in the 1st st, dc in the next st; repeat from * across. -18
Row 4: Ch 2, turn, dc in the 1st st, *(dc, ch 1) in the ch-1 space, dc in each st to the next ch-1 space; repeat from * across. -24

Repeat row 5 until you have 18 total rows. -108

You will now start working in the round, remove all stitch markers.
Round 1: Ch 2, turn, dc in each st around, join to the 1st st with slip st. -108
