Warm Winter Cowl Crochet Pattern
Winter will be here soon, and I’ve got just the thing.
If you’re looking for something to grab on your way out the door, the Warm Winter Cowl is perfect.
It will keep you warm and cozy outside in the cold. But it’s small enough to throw in your purse once you’re inside. No unnecessary bulk like with some scarves.
The best part about this cowl is the decorative puff stitch. It’s easy to get the hang of and looks beautiful whenever it’s used. It’s made out of plymouth encore yarn that’s an acrylic wool blend. It’s durable and soft making it perfect for this plushy cowl.
You can get access to the digital pdf pattern and 3 skeins of Plymouth Encore worsted yarn in the crochet kits I’ve put together here. The pattern will walk you through how to create this cowl and how to incorporate your decorative stitches. It’s simple and fun, and perfect for cold weather.
