Incredibly snuggly, this quick-crochet cowl will warm you up in no time! I designed this cowl to have a chic and trendy style, while keeping the pattern easy enough for the beginning crocheter. (No lie: this cowl is a perfect “First Project” if you’ve always wanted to learn how to crochet.) Make one in a bold color to brighten up your winter coat and chase away winter drab. Then make a stack for everyone on your Christmas list. You’ll be a Crochet Rock Star.
