The Brook Crochet Cowl-Free Pattern



I was so happy to be asked to be a guest blogger for the Bella Coco Crochet blog this month. Thanks so much to Sarah-Jayne for featuring my pattern!

The Brook Cowl was inspired by the beautiful Caron x Pantone yarn I received with one of the recent Crochet Society boxes. This luxurious chunky yarn is a merino acrylic blend, making it super soft and lovely to work with. The wave like stitches make this a therapeutic and really satisfying project that you won't want to put down! I used 1x 100g skein in the Morning Blues colourway, but check out the full range of colours available at lovecrafts.com

Plant pot covers-free crochet pattern

This quick little make is a great use for any leftover bits of t shirt or chunky yarn. I used the Hoooked ribbon and zpagetti yarns to make these cute little gifts for my little boy's pre-school teachers. The pattern would suit any yarn that has a small amount of stretch in it and it's really simple to adapt. I've made these using paintbox yarns chunky acrylic too and it works perfectly!

You will need:
Just a small amount of yarn and a hook size to match (with the t shirt or ribbon yarn I use 9mm or chunky acrylic with a 6mm)

Granny Square Purse Tutorial

This is a super quick and fun make using any granny square pattern you like. It’s a great way of using up any yarns scraps you have and would work well using lots of different types of yarn. I used knitcraft cotton blend yarn from hobbycraft with a 4mm hook but you could use any yarn and hook size to suit. Simply make a 7 round granny square using your preferred method or use the pattern below. I wanted to use quite a solid square. You’ll then finished with a row of double crochet and sew. Change colour after each row if you like, just remember to work over your yarn tails as you go to save time weaving in all those ends later.

You will need:
Cotton blend yarn in 4 colours. I used purple, hot pink, mustard and teal
4mm hook
1 button
