The Valerie Cowl is a beginner friendly filet crochet scarf pattern. Filet crochet is the technique of skipping specific stitches to create a certain look or image with your crocheted piece.
The Valerie Cowl crochet pattern calls for a light worsted weight (#4) yarn. For my sample I used Yarn Bee Sweet Divinity in the colorway Red Clay. I feel the yarn gives it a look similar to the vintage filet crochet projects I’ve seen.
Another great yarn that would work really well with this filet crochet project is Lion Brand Jeans Yarn. It is on the lighter side of a worsted weight and has great tones to it.
I’ve enjoyed working with both yarns and you can see how nice the Sweet Divinity looks with the filet crochet technique.
You’ll need approximately 150 – 200 yards of yarn to create a cowl that is 14.5″ x 13″ laid flat.
This pattern is rated easy in pattern difficulty. It is a beginner-friendly filet crochet pattern. The stitches are very basic and the counts are repetitive.
