Last winter, I had the privilege of designing a cowl for All Free Crochet’s blog, Stitch & Unwind. I had a lot of fun doing it, and I am loving the final result. Now, the full pattern is available right here on my blog!

This cowl is made with Lion Brand’s Heartland in “Grand Canyon”, and I highly recommend using it because it makes the detailing and drape sooo pretty. I also made a matching slouch hat pattern, which you can find by clicking below:

If you would like to purchase an inexpensive, ad-free PDF version, you can find it on Etsy. It even includes the pattern for the matching cowl!

So without further ado, scroll down for the pattern for the Sandy Cowl (also known as the Eggnog Cowl).

    just checked out stitch & unwind awesome site very excited to make this set ! I had just bought a couple of awesome skeins of Heartland and wasn’t sure what I wanted to make for me, now I know! Thank you

    • Rebecca January 10, 2015, 7:40 pm

      Perfect! 🙂

  • Mary Todd January 10, 2015, 9:36 am

    looks great! Thanks

    • Rebecca January 10, 2015, 7:40 pm

      Thank you 🙂

  • Betty Everetts January 10, 2015, 5:17 pm

    I did what you told Mona to do and I still can not print it all I got was the picture of the cowl. No instructions.

    • Rebecca January 10, 2015, 7:39 pm

      Hi Betty, I’m not sure who you’re referring to but I’m guessing she commented on a different blog post? Usually that IS the way to print a pattern, but this pattern is not on my blog. As stated above, it was a pattern I made for the Stitch & Unwind blog, and the pattern is linked up in the post, and here’s the URL: http://stitchandunwind.com/free-crochet-pattern-eggnog-crochet-cowl/. 🙂

  • Cindy January 11, 2015, 5:17 pm

    I love this set.It is hassle free. Thank you for the free patterns.

  • jacire January 16, 2015, 8:49 am

    “Webpage not available” Waah! This is so pretty, I want to start it now! 🙂

  • craftyrose January 21, 2015, 11:29 am

    I love this set, but can I turn cowl into scarf? Can i just skip the sl st and sc thay joins and follow pattern turning back and forth for scarf?

    • Rebecca April 2, 2015, 12:48 pm

      You could, but you would need to make it a lot longer or it wouldn’t stay on. 🙂

  • Barbara March 22, 2015, 3:33 pm

    hi, i would like to learn crochet and would love to
    Be able to do the eggnog cowl 🙂
    Could you tell me the colour?
    I’m in the uk and need to find a stockist.

    Thanks
    Barbara

    • Rebecca April 2, 2015, 12:48 pm

      Yes, it’s Grand Canyon.

  • Sara March 25, 2015, 5:52 pm

    The cowl looks like it has a sheen to it. Could you please tell me what color in the heartland line you used?

    Thanks you

    • Rebecca April 2, 2015, 12:49 pm

      It’s Grand Canyon. Most of their colors have a pretty nice sheen though. Grand Canyon is my favorite 🙂

  • Patricia B September 21, 2015, 11:58 pm

    Love this cowl pattern and the color of the yarn is smashing! Thank you for sharing.

  • Sandy September 22, 2015, 7:58 pm

    This sounds like fun to make. Yours is lovely.

  • Elizabeth October 6, 2015, 10:05 am

    I love Heartland yarn, and this looks like another great pattern for me to try with it!

  • Christina Felts October 24, 2015, 2:58 pm

    Round 2 ch 1 turn? Do you mean continue ?

    • Rebecca October 26, 2015, 10:48 am

      Nope, turn 🙂 Rounds of SC have distinctly different looks when you continue without turning and when you turn each row. I’m going for the look that the latter one gives. If you want to continue without turning, the pattern will still work, it will just look different.

  • Liz October 27, 2015, 12:30 pm

    Thank you so much for sharing your talent . I can hardly wait to make this.

  • Megan Conner November 11, 2015, 10:31 pm

    Can you do a video for this one, too? I feel absolutely ridiculous, trying to see how you join the ends when you SC second from hook?

    • Rebecca November 12, 2015, 9:51 am

      I’m sorry, at this point there is no video available. 🙂 You are literally bring the first SC you made around to touch the last SC you made, and joining them with a slip stitch. Be careful you don’t twist the chain.

      • Megan Conner November 12, 2015, 2:34 pm

        🙂 thanks for replying, I got it going. It just looked funky with just the chain. I guess I was over thinking it! Thank you again!

  • Shelly Stubbs November 17, 2015, 12:06 am

    Ok I bought this pattern, and Im already confused; After CH 91, are you supposed to connect the chain so its a circle? And then continue crocheting in a circle? I finished it as a flat piece, which now Im certain is wrong 🙁

    • Rebecca November 17, 2015, 9:36 am

      Before you panic, you can still seam it up and it’s going to look basically the same. But no, it’s not worked flat. 🙂 The instructions for joining are included in each round. For instance, the last part of Round 1 says:

      “Join with a SL ST to top of first SC, being careful not to twist the round.”

      Many patterns ask you to join after chaining, which may be what threw you off? I wait to join until the first round is complete because it’s so much easier to avoid accidentally twisting the cowl when you’re working with a row of SCs, than when you only have a long chain.

  • Janet December 18, 2015, 8:38 pm

    Hi
    Is there a matching pattern for flip mittens or gloves?

  • Jo December 31, 2015, 2:07 pm

    Many thanks for cowl pattern. Looks fab!

  • Laurie January 11, 2016, 7:35 am

    Love the cowl!! Need to shop for the yarn, perfect for the pattern. Thank you.

  • Jackie Sherman January 11, 2016, 9:30 am

    Need to make this for myself!

  • Kat January 11, 2016, 10:21 am

    love this pattern (and that I can buy an ad-free version.) I made two fir Christmas gifts. They look nice and work up quickly!

  • Teri January 11, 2016, 11:45 am

    I love the entire Sandy collection. But the cowl is my favorite. It has such gorgeous texture (are all crocheters “touches??) I touch everything in stores just to get the “feel” of them. This looks so soft and smooshy. I’m definitely making this for me… After I make it for at least one of my daughters…maybe all 3!

  • Amber January 11, 2016, 12:14 pm

    this is the first pattern I used from your page and one that I repeat often. Comes together quick!

  • Leslie January 11, 2016, 2:56 pm

    What a gorgeous pattern! Thank you!

  • Jeanne January 11, 2016, 6:05 pm

    Made this cowl over the weekend. Love how it is finished on both ends and it lays beautifully.

  • Easwari January 12, 2016, 11:52 am

    i like the look of this pattern. It is very cosy and stylish.

  • Susan Izbiansky January 13, 2016, 1:00 pm

    I have to make this one.

  • Kathleen Fowler January 13, 2016, 3:36 pm

    Looks like a nice easy pattern and looks pretty too.

  • Angela Saver January 17, 2016, 2:49 pm

    This is my favorite pattern because I love the texture/chunkiness of it!

  • Carla Youngs February 5, 2016, 10:28 am

    I love this pattern. It works up so quickly. I made two of these. The first one was a Christmas present for my daughter. The second was for myself. Thank you.

  • Betty Barrington-Page February 10, 2016, 2:54 pm

    I feel really stupid, as no one else asked this question. What does SK stand for?

    • Rebecca February 10, 2016, 3:49 pm

      Skip. 🙂

  • Courtney March 14, 2016, 8:57 am

    Hi I just discovered this pattern even though I’ve been a fan of your designs for a little while. I’m just getting back into crochet after losing motivation for a little while but I decided to make a scarf of some sort for my sister’s birthday in April and I loved this pattern as soon as I saw it. Thanks so much for all of your amazing designs ♡♡

  • Kimheang Chea September 27, 2016, 2:06 am

    I am confused with the first row when stated that to sc and turn? Can you do a demo on that for me.

    • Rebecca September 27, 2016, 9:23 am

      The first row doesn’t say anything about turning, so I’m not sure what you’re asking 🙂

  • Graciella Gutierrez December 18, 2016, 8:38 pm

    Quick question im working on this cowl.. after i chain 91 do i close it so it can make it a circle or do we put it together at the end

  • Terri S Wright March 18, 2017, 2:19 am

    Rebecca, I really love your pattern! Beautiful! I would like to be able to drape the cowl around my neck three times which would mean I need to make a longer chain; would the multiples be 2 + 1? Thank you for sharing your talents!

    • Rebecca March 18, 2017, 6:00 pm

      Yes 🙂
