Charisma Cowl Free Crochet Pattern

The Charisma Cowl is the type of crochet project I could make all day, every day. Quick and easy with pretty stitches that work well in a chunky yarn, what’s not to love?

And if I haven’t said it before my neck is always cold! I prefer cowls to scarves for the simplicity. Four littles hanging off of me make scarves trickier. Plus cowls, use less yarn ?

The Charisma Cowl uses only one ball of Lion Brand’s Wool Ease Thick & Quick or less than 100 yds of #6 superbulky yarn. I’m working and wearing that chunky yarn while I can ya’ll. One day Spring is in the air and the next there’s snow on the mountain. But mornings are sure to be cold for a while.

Finishing

I chose to give my blue cowl a twist and then seamed the short edges together. You may choose to seam it without the twist, like I did on the cream version ? or even add buttons instead of seaming.
