Are you looking for stylish ways to bundle up this winter? If so, a crocheted cowl is a fantastic wardrobe piece to consider making. These two warm, trendy crochet cowls are both perfect additions to any stylish lady’s winter 2017 wardrobe.
This thick, warm, textured cowl is a super quick crochet project that’s as easy to make as it is to wear. I’ve used a jumbo-sized vivid teal-colored wool yarn to crochet my project sample; this color is really trendy right now, and it pairs well with lots of other colors for maximum versatility. If your winter 2017 wardrobe basics are black, gray, navy blue, khaki or brown, this color will complement them beautifully.

The Chepstow cowl looks like a bulky or jumbo crochet project, but it’s a clever illusion; you’ll actually use medium-weight yarn to crochet this design. The project sample is worked in a lovely neutral colored yarn that’s completely versatile and looks great paired with lots of other colors, textures and fibers.
The pattern for the Chepstow cowl is by Sharon Silverman, and it is included in her book called Crochet Cowls: 15 Bold & Beautiful Designs, published by Stackpole Books.

The short version of the review: we highly recommend this book.
