Crochet Cowl

Had to share this one. I don't knit, but probably will learn one of these days but I do crochet and found this easy loose cowl. Perfect for making a few now to give as gifts during the holidays when it gets cooler. Here is the link to the site at Crochet Spot, but I will also repeat them.

Feel free to adjust the size of the cowl as you see fit!

Skill Level: Beginner
Finished Size: 8” (20 cm) tall, 19” (48 cm) around
Note: to adjust size, follow directions within pattern
Materials:Medium Weight yarn (approximately 90 yards) Crochet Hook N (10.00 mm)
Gauge: not really important

Crochet Pattern: Start by chaining 35 or as long as you want your cowl.
Row 1: ch 1, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 35 sc
Row 2: dc in each sc across: 35 dc
Row 3: sc in each dc across: 35 sc
Repeat rows 2 – 3, seven more times or until cowl is as tall as you desire.

Slip stitch or sew the shorter sides of the cowl together and finish off. You may also choose to use buttons as a closure instead of sewing ends together.
If you make this cowl, send me a pic and I'll post it here for everyone to enjoy and get inspired.
