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

With colder temps still here, and St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, now is the perfect time to use up some thicker yarn and make a cozy cowl.

Using the colors orange, green and white reminded me of an Irish Flag. The Irish Flag Cowl is great for a beginner, or just to show some St. Patty’s Day spirit. 

Made with Lion Brand Hometown, it will work 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.

Orange, white, and green cowl to match the colors of the Irish flag.

    • 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.

  • 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.
