She is ready to keep you warm on a Wild West horseback ride, or maybe just cute and stylish for a Saturday night on the town! The Rustic Cowl is a classic half granny square, supersized and sewn together at the corners. It is a perfect project for an advanced beginner or a something quick to whip up for an experienced crocheter. I created this pattern to use my very first skein of handspun 2-ply yarn. My yarn was pretty lumpy, so I wanted something that took advantage of all those twists and turns. I decided to work up The Rustic Cowl using a few other kinds of easy-to-find yarn and really loved how it turned out with Lion Brand Homespun. I think the name of that yarn says it all and it is an excellent match for this design. I hope you enjoy making and wearing The Rustic Cowl! I look forward to seeing your finished projects.

My Grandma Pfenning taught me to crochet at a young age and was an inspiration to me for as long as I can remember. I love playing with yarn, making snuggly objects and giving gifts to my friends and loved ones. I am a new designer and appreciate your feedback. Please let me know how your projects go and share pictures :) Enjoy! Chris
