Cowls are such a versatile accessory! You can make them long, wide and thick enough to cover your head and neck and keep you warm in the coldest climate. You can make them short and sweet as an accent for the perfect new work or play outfit.
A fun project when you have just one skein of that special yarn; but you can also use up 2 or 3 skeins to make a big, luxurious cowl - all from this same pattern.
The pattern itself is pretty basic - you will need to know how to chain, foundation single crochet, single crochet and double treble crochet stitches. You also need to know a method of joining the ends of your cowl together - weaving, mattress stitch, or something else as there are no specific instructions on joining the ends.
You can customize the size of your cowl by adding repeats to make it wider; and continue crocheting until it's long enough (or until you run out of yarn!)
Although written for sport weight yarn, you can make this with any size yarn - just follow the pattern substituting your favorite weight yarn and an appropriate hook. The double treble stitches give the cowl great texture even if made with fingering weight yarn.
Gauge is not critical for this project
Crocheting is my crafty passion - passed on to me by my grandmother. :-)
