Latte Capelet Cowl Free Crochet Pattern

I have found my new fall favorite! This capelet cowl is so perfect for this time of year. It keeps my neck and shoulders warm when I need it and is easy pull off once those afternoons warm up.

You’ve probably seen the new Caron Latte Cakes at Michael’s but have you tried them? I’ll admit, fuzzy yarn can look intimidating but I’m here to tell you this yarn is not scary! Super soft, yes. Easy to work with, yes. Comes in gorgeous colorways, yes. And it’s a #5 bulky yarn, so it works up fast!

What I noticed working with this yarn is that the fuzz-the long fibers that stick out, giving it an ethereal quality don’t impede my crochet hook. They’re long enough to stand out and away from the main yarn strand. The fibers are also white, while the yarn itself is colored (& self striping for fewer ends!), this makes the main yarn and my stitches easy to see.

Now frogging is never fun and I did have to frog a few times when I missed an increase, but besides a few stitches catching on the fibers I had no problems. I just had to loosen up and work that stitch apart and then I could carry on pulling out the row.

Once I had my hands on this yarn I had to stop all my other wips (I’m sure you can relate) and work up this capelet pattern. I’ve posted the capelet cowl crochet pattern below.

  • This capelet cowl is worked in the round. At the end of each round you will ss to top of 3rd ch to join the round.
  • It’s worked top down.
  • Ch 3 counts as a dc.
  • Dimensions when laid flat: 11” across the top (cowl), 27.5” across the bottom (capelet), length 19”

Stitches 

ch-chain dc-double crochet ss-slip stitch Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC): tutorial here Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC): made the same way you make the FPDC, but instead of inserting your hook in from the front around the post of the stitch you insert your hook from the back around the post and form a double crochet.
