What I love most about cowls: They free you from the stress of having to tie a scarf around your neck in a way that’s both secure and stylish. Forget about scarf tying! You just wrap your cowl around your neck, and you’re good to go.
I also LOVE crocheting my own cowls; it’s fun to choose colors, fibers and patterns to match all my other cold-weather gear.
If crocheting cowls is also of interest to you, I invite you to take a look at the following list of crochet cowl patterns. I’ve rounded up bunches of fantastic patterns for stylish cowls that will keep you entertained while you’re making them, and then keep you warm when you’re wearing them afterwards. Enjoy!
