The Peafowl Cowl

Peafowl Cowl

This scarf was named for its colors. The second I finished this project it brought Peafowls to mind, which I love!

The Peafowl Cowl is a corner-to-corner scarf that is sewn together at the end making it an infinity scarf.

If you have not used the corner-to-corner (C2C) stitch yet, this is a must try! It is one of my favorite stitches of all time in part for its fantastic texture, but also because of the fact that you can use the “squares” made from each stitch to crochet graphs! If you are interested in the graphs you can check out my last post about the Owl Pillow Graph. There are so many graphs that you can use that it really is endless options.

I absolutely love how this came out, so I decided to write up a pattern for it not only so that other people could make it, but so I could remember what I did ;).

The Materials:

Yarn- 2 Skeins of I Love This Yarn! in Nightwatch and 1 skein of Lion Brand Heartland in Great Smoky Mountains

Hook- 5 or 5.25mm and 4mm


Needle for sewing scarf together and weaving in ends.

The Notes:

-As soon as you start crocheting this scarf, you will be increasing every single row until you reach the width of the scarf. You will then decrease one side while increasing the other to continue building length. Once the scarf is long enough, you will decrease both sides until they meet at the final point.

-Each square is comprised of a chain 2 and 3 hdc.

The Pattern:

With the 5mm or the 5.25mm, Chain 5

1 Hdc in third ch from the hook. Hdc in next two stitches, turn – 1 square made

Ch 5

1 Hdc in third ch from the hook. Hdc in next two stitches. – 2 squares made

Sl st into the chain space of the first square. (Ch 2, 3 hdc) into the chain space. – 3 squares made

Ch 5

1 Hdc in third ch from the hook. Hdc in next two stitches. – 4 squares made

Sl st into the next chain space. (Ch 2, 3 hdc) into ch space. – 5 sqaures made

Repeat these steps until you have a width of about 8-9 inches.

Now we begin decreasing.

When you reach the end of the row, instead of chaining 5, slip stitch into the top of each hdc from last square.

*(Ch 2, 3 hdc) into ch space*. Repeat * * to end.

Ch 5

1 Hdc into the third ch from hook. Hdc in next two stitches.

Continue increasing on this side and decreasing on the other. This will keep the width the same while increasing the length.

Make sure that you are only decreasing on one side.

After about 56 inches, begin decreasing on both sides.

The finishing length should be about 60 inches.

Sew the two ends together to make an infinity scarf/cowl.

The Edging:

  • Switch to the 4mm hook

(I only put the edging on one side, however, you may add it to both if you’d like.)

Attach Lion Brand yarn near the seam.

Ch 1, sc around and join to first sc. The sc row is in multiples of 3, so any number that is divisble by 3 will work.

Ch 6. Skip next two stitches, dc in next stitch.

*Ch 3, sk next two stitches, dc in next stitch.* Repeat from * to * to the end. Join

Ch 1, (Sc, Hdc, Dc, Tr, Dc, Hdc, Sc) in each ch-3 space all the way around. Join with a sl st to the first sc.
