This crochet cowl pattern was one of the first I put on paper and one of my favorite to wear. It uses only double crochets and chains which makes it a great easy project for the beginner! I love the subtle modern chevron patterning on this cowl.
My favorite aspect of this patterns is that it uses only 1 skein of yarn! I love love love one skein projects. The yarn I used is Big Twist Sincerely yarn from Joann’s. I was pleasantly surprised by this yarn. It is super soft heavier worsted weight yarn and has all the squishiness (this is an official yarn description term right?) and it drapes really well too. Ok enough chit chat…
