St. Patrick’s Day Irish Flag Cowl Free Crochet Pattern

Posted by on March 9, 2012 in Crochet | 6 comments

I had some thicker yarn, and the colors reminded me of an Irish Flag, so I made this Irish Flag Cowl.  It’s great for a beginner, or just to show some St. Patty’s Day spirit. It’s made with Lion Brand Hometown, which works up super quick, so you should be done in less than a couple of hours. If you’d prefer the pattern in pdf form, see the bottom of the post, for the link.

Happy Crocheting!



  1. Love the cowl … it doesn’t seem to want to download for me???

    • I have no idea why the download link Ravelry gave me doesn’t work, but I changed it. You can at least click to the Ravelry page, and then click the download from there. Hope that helps. Sorry.

  2. Love the cowl, looks fantastic

  3. Looks great, and who doesn’t like to show some Irish spirit! I don’t think I have the right colors on hand, and I know I don’t have anything think enough….but now you’ve got me thinking….I could use double thickness…hum, might have to go cruising through my stash to see if I can whip up something in time.

  4. Could you please give the mm for the crochet hook “Q”

    • The Q hook I used is a 15.75 mm. (Sorry about the delay. I tried to send you an email, but it came back undeliverable.)
