The crochet cowl is the type of pattern that can be designed for warm weather or cold. In this case, you can go either way.
I was playing around with some crochet stitches the other night when I discovered a fun and simple way to make this beautiful scarf. The reason I just *had* to write it out was that I wanted to make sure I remember how to make the leaning rows. Just a simple stitch placement and it all falls into place!
