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.

Pattern Details:

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.

  1. Hi, I love this pattern (all your patterns matter of fact), I’m having some problems with this on the count, I keep coming up with two extra stitches. I’ve charted it out, and counted and still two extra stitches at the end. Am I correct that I’m doing my first crochet in the same stitch as my chain 3? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
