Sweetheart Cowl Crochet Pattern
The most important accessory is a smile, but after that, it’s all up to you. This sweetheart cowl is bound to become one of your go-to accessories on colder days.
You’ll love the whimsical pattern almost as much as how easy it is to follow. This crochet pattern is worked in the round, so brush up on those crochet skills before you begin. Speaking of brushing up on your crochet skills, I highly recommend checking out the Crochet Fundamentals class that will help you to polish and perfect your skills and techniques.
With a pattern this cute and unique, you’ll want to ditch your plain old scarves every time you see them hanging in your closet. You can choose to crochet with whatever color fits the outfit you have in mind. We’re envisioning how great it would look paired with some knee-high boots and layered under a winter coat.
While this design will have you wishing for chilly days, this cowl is also light enough to wear in warmer weather. Using bright colors can add a touch of spring to your everyday outfits. You might even want to make two, so you can rotate your wardrobe accordingly.
