Two Way Cowl Free Crochet Pattern

I finally got around to making something for myself! I think it’s time you should too 😉 This time of year I always feel the cold in my neck, so I designed this super soft and cozy cowl. It’s crocheted as a basic rectangle with a simple shell stitch-these are all things you can do, I promise! This cowl will take you right into Spring as well! Caron Simply Soft is a bit lighter yarn for a worsted weight. I just love the sheen and shine and their color selection is amazing! I’m loving my cowl and hope you do too!

Leave a long tail for sewing together.



Sew it:

First lay your finished rectangle out.

Then fold the short edges down the center, overlapping them and lining up the edges.

Thread your yarn needle with the long tail you left and weave it in between your edge stitches, going through both layers. Continue across the edge.

If you want to exclusively wear your cowl as shown, I think placing buttons along the bottom would be stunning!

Now, when you unfold your sewn cowl, it will be a twisted circle. You can also just sew your short edges together, without crossing them if you prefer to have it that way.

Eccola!
