Today I would like to share an easy crochet pattern with you for a lace cowl that is excellent to wear in sunny weather.
Summer is just around the corner so it’s time to enjoy some lightweight projects! Sunny Lace Cowl is a stylish and casual accessory suitable to any occassion.
I adored making this crochet cowl and I am more than delighted with the end result.
Find the full free pattern below or purchase the ad-free, printable PDF crochet pattern with stitch chart HERE on ETSY or HERE on Ravelry.
I bought this Malabrigo Lace Yarn in this fabulous ochre color and actually I am obsessed with this color. I used less than one skein of yarn (40g) with a 2,5mm crochet hook.
This yarn is very delicate and that’s why the cowl is light and airy. This was my first time using this yarn and I think it goes really nicely with the lacy pattern.
For such a simple pattern, it gives lovely effect on any spring or summer day.
Although this is listed as laceweight, feel free to substitute any fingering weight yarn you want.
Sunny Lace Cowl is a great beginner lace project that is simple to memorize and quick to finish.
I have given instruction in Notes below to change the width\length depending on the amount of yarn you have or your personal preferences.
A long size cowl create an airy infinity scarf and a smaller one would be a great last-minute gift. It’s worked flat, blocked and then grafted together to create a loop.
If you want to share your wips and finished shawl on social media, please, use hashtag #mycrochetory and #sunnylacecowl.
As a bonus I have included a stitch chart in the ad-free, printable PDF crochet pattern for anyone, who want to support my work and purchase this crochet pattern HERE on ETSY or HERE on Ravelry.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pattern. Your instruction said Repeat Rows 2-4 until Row 244. Do you mean repeat rows 1-3? Thank you for clarifying~
Hi, thanks for noticing. It should be Repeat Rows 2-3 until row 244
Hi there. What a lovely cowl!
In the pattern u say repeat row 2-4 but there is no row 4 written. Did u mean row 3?
Hi, Yes, I have just updated the pattern.
I am a newbie, so I have a question, which may seem silly, but here goes. Is it ok to make some of the infinity scarves to give to my nieces for Christmas?? Do you want me to tell them your name or anything? So sorry if this is dumb to you, just felt like I needed to ask. Thanks so much. Gena
It’s ok. You can make the shawl for your personal use and as a gift. The mass production is only forbidden 🙂
I just ordered and paid for this pattern via Etsy but so far no download link has been sent. Usually it happens almost immediately. What’s up?
