Men’s Crochet Cowl Granite Cowl a Free Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Granite Cowl is a classic men’s crochet cowl. It’s warm, cozy and easy to style. Crocheted in two tone neutrals this classic piece is quick to pair with anything when braving the cold.

The classic lines bring this squishy cowl up to keep your face warm. And it’s cozy on your neck as well. Simply made and simply worn, it’s perfect for the men in your life.

This ribbed cowl is crocheted as flat rectangle and then seamed. This construction makes it easy to adjust. Adding buttons and overlapping the edges would give the Granite Cowl an even more polished look.

I crocheted this cowl in Lion Brand’s Hometown Yarn. It’s a superbulky #6 yarn so it works up quickly. Not to mention Hometown Yarn comes in so many colorful options.
