Cowl Challenge 5

Updated: Jan 29

This cowl was created with worsted weight yarn but can be crocheted with any weight or type of yarn. A great unisex pattern. Easy row repeat with a fun texture. The width & length of the cowl will change with the different weights of yarn. Use as many colors as you have on hand.
