All Weather Cowl
This pattern was updated on January 2, 2015 to be clearer and easier to read, especially for beginners.
This pattern was included in AllFreeCrochet’s list of 100 Favorites: the Most Popular Free Crochet Patterns of 2013!
This delightful unisex cowl/circle scarf is made with a textured cotton blend yarn. The stitch pattern looks great from both sides, making this a reversible project. The eyelet pattern combined with the lightweight cotton yarn makes this a perfect cowl for all seasons. Wear it wrapped three times for warmth in cold weather, or looped loosely around your neck in warm weather.

J-10 (6 mm) Tunisian crochet hook or any size needed to obtain gauge. (This is crocheted lengthwise, so I recommend using a Tunisian crochet hook with a flexible cable. I sell several sizes on Etsy here.)
