Comfy Mochi Cowl - free crochet pattern by Jessie At Home

Comfy Mochi Cowl
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This simple cowl is worked in rows and features large diagonal blocks of solid sections and mesh sections. It’s nice and long so it can be wrapped around several times and in many ways. The wonderful color changes of the Crystal Palace Mini Mochi creates a colorful cowl without having tons of ends to weave in, plus, it’s so very soft, you’ll never want to take it off!!

Getting Started:
To join each new skein of yarn, a wet felted join is recommended. The traditional method of leaving two long ends and weaving them in will also work well with this yarn. Do not use a magic knot, this yarn will not hold it well.

Row 1: Ch 63 (last 3 chs count as dc), 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each of next 56 ch, dc3tog over last 3 ch. – {60 sts}
Row 2: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), dc3tog over first 3 sts, dc in each of next 56 sts, 3 dc in last st. – {60 sts}
Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in same st, dc in each of next 56 sts, dc3tog over last 3 sts.
Rows 4-19: Repeat rows 2 & 3 eight more times.
Row 20: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), dc3tog over first 3 sts, [ch 1, skip 1, dc in next st] 28 times, ch 1, 2 dc in last st.
Row 21: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in same st, [ch 1, dc in next ch-1 sp] 28 times, dc3tog over last 3 sts.
Row 22: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), dc3tog over first 3 sts, [ch 1, dc in next ch-1 sp] 27 times, ch 1, skip 1, dc in next st, ch 1, 2 dc in last st.
Rows 23-38: Repeat rows 21 & 22 eight more times.
Row 39: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in same st, dc in each of next 56 ch, dc3tog over last 3 sts.
Row 40: Ch 2 (does not count as a st), dc3tog over first 3 sts, dc in each of next 56 sts, 3 dc in last st.
Row 41: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in same st, dc in each of next 56 sts, dc3tog over last 3 sts.
Rows 42-57: Repeat rows 40 & 41 eight more times.

Repeat rows 20 – 57 once more, then repeat rows 20 – 38 one more time.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Block piece flat.

Fold cowl into a tube, and sew the starting chain and the top of the final row together with left over yarn.

Wear or give and enjoy!

    I am curious! I am getting ready to order my yarn. Did you use up all 3 skeins? I am going to make matching boot cuffs

    • Jessie
      December 30, 2015 at 7:00 pm (2 years ago)

      Yes, I used up all 3, you’ll need more for your boot cuffs.

    Love this scarf! I’m having trouble coming up with 60 stitches. I had to add an additional chain to start to get the 60 stitches. After the first 2 rows my edges aren’t straight. Is that correct? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

      The cowl is worked at an angle so when you join it at the end, it will have diagonal sections.

      I’m also having problems making 60 stitches … Did the pattern work adding an extra chain??

    This is a great design, Jessie! And the yarn shows it off so well.

    Can this also be pulled down over your shoulders and used as a shawl.

      Sure, I don’t see why not.

    Do you have any pictures you can show about joining the last row to the starting chain? I’m finished with the scarf but something doesn’t look right. The edges don’t line up properly. I counted every row so I know I didn’t drop or add any stitches. It’s so beautiful I don’t want to scrap this whole project. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

    • Jessie
      February 7, 2016 at 11:02 pm (2 years ago)

      There are the same number of sts on the first and last row. So you should be able to fold the cowl into a circle and join the diagonal edges together with a whip st.

    • Gemma
      February 21, 2016 at 3:17 pm (2 years ago)

      I can see that I’m going to have the same issues joining the scarf together?? I think it’s because it is worked at an angle … How do you join it so that the sides align correctly?? The only way I can think is to twist in the middle but is there a better way???

      • Jessie
        February 21, 2016 at 4:59 pm (2 years ago)

        You do not add a twist, you just join the first and last rows together. Lay it flat, fold one end over, then the other end so that the first and last rows line up. You will see that they fit together perfectly to make a tube. If you twist it, it will not work.

      Yes please… I would also request you Jessie to please post the pics of the scarf wip , so that our confusion is clear…☺️..

    Can I use a little thicker yarn. I have arthritis in my hands and the sock yarn is to hard for me to handle

    • Jessie
      February 23, 2016 at 9:58 am (2 years ago)

      You sure can! Your cowl will be bigger, but that will just make it more cozy. There is even a worsted weight version of the yarn I used – Mochi Plus – you can find it here.

    I love this pattern. I am at the end and it is only about 6 feet, not 9. I have 104 rows total. Is that correct or have I misread the pattern?

    • Jessie
      March 1, 2016 at 7:57 pm (2 years ago)

      There should be 3 sets of solid sections and 3 sets of lace sections. One set of each takes most of 1 Mini Mochi ball. If you don’t have 3 sets, you didn’t do enough

    Hi Jessie, I’ve tried multiple times, following your pattern exactly, and am unable to maintain 60 stitches per row!
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I’d love to make this cowl!

    • Jessie
      August 27, 2016 at 9:53 am (2 years ago)

      I don’t know what to tell you. I know I counted nearly every row as I went because it’s easy to make a mistake.

    • Heather
      February 7, 2018 at 8:34 am (1 month ago)

      The dc3tgo is one stitch, then 56 stitches to the last stitch, the 3 dc in last stitch is 60 stitches

    Hello, I would like to ask a question about a cowl: comfy mochi cowl.

    What does it mean at the end;

    Repeat rows 20 – 57 once more, then repeat rows 20 – 38 one more time.

    Does this mean I have to repeat all these rows one more time?

    I am from the Netherlands, and I truly don’t understand these lines!
    The rest of the pattern is easy to follow. And it is a beautiful cowl!

    • Jessie
      December 9, 2016 at 4:57 pm (1 year ago)

      You repeat rows 20-57, after that you repeat rows 20-38 again

    Hello Jessie, thank you for sharing the pattern, it’s lovely, however, I’m having an issue with row 22, it says 27 times and I have too many stiches left to get to the end with 2 dc in the same stitch. Can you help me to clear this up. Thank you in advance,

    • Jessie
      December 29, 2016 at 4:34 pm (1 year ago)

      Check to be sure the previous row is correct. It should work as it is worked over 60 sts, and creates 60 sts, just like all the rows.

    I thought it might help others to share my experience when working up this simple yet lovely pattern… I, too, struggled to get 60 stitches in the first couple rows. I redid them countless times but always came up short. I ended up chaining 63 to start, because it makes more sense…. the first three chains count as stitch 1, then 2 more in the next chain, plus the 56…. So that brings you to 59, plus the decrease stitch to make 60. Once you get these first rows sorted out the rest goes smoothly as long as you pay attention. It helps to remember that you are stitching on an angle so it will need to decrease on one end each time and increase at the other to make up the difference. I have yet to join mine, but I really love how it turned out! I used Malabrigo Finito yarn and it has a great feel to it.

    • Jessie
      August 2, 2017 at 9:17 pm (8 months ago)

      It’s worked at an angle, but there are no scalloped edges

  15. Beverly Robinson

    How many stitches should I have at the end ?

    • Jessie
      August 14, 2017 at 8:38 am (7 months ago)

      60, always 60.

  16. Beverly Robinson

    Rolls 20-22 only have 31stitches?Do I need to have 60 on eve

    • Jessie
      August 15, 2017 at 11:23 am (7 months ago)

      If you count the ch-1s there are 60 sts.

    Hi Jessie,

    I am new to reading patterns so I apologize, but I have a question… Rows 4-19 Repeat rows 2 & 3 eight more times.
    So this is the way that I am understanding it please let me know if I have it correct.

    Rows 4 to 19 is 16 Rows so do I do rows 2 & 3, 8 Times for all 16 rows ie:

    Row 4 – 2 & 3 Eight Times
    Row 5 – 2 & 3 Eight Times
    Row 6 – 2 & 3 Eight Times etc for a total of 256 rows?

    Thank you so much! 🙂

    • Jessie
      September 14, 2017 at 12:33 pm (6 months ago)

      row 4 is row 2, row 5 is row 3, row 6 is row 2, row 7 is row 3 and so on

    Hi Jessie… ☺️… I love this pattern and I have started making it. But I am a bit confused… I m getting the two sides of the width slant , which will make the pattern after joining the two ends…but my confusion is that it’s increasing length wise , so the edges are slant lengthwise….where am I going wrong..?? Could you please help me…can I post the pic of my work here..??
    Thank you…☺️..

    • Jessie
      January 28, 2018 at 11:43 am (2 months ago)

      One side should be increasing and one side should be decreasing. I don’t think you can post a picture here, but you can in my facebook group linked at the bottom of the pattern, then just tag me there and we can figure it out!
