This stylish crocheted cowl is a statement. Nothing more, nothing less.
You can wear it loosely around your neck, you can fold it into half to have all the two-layer warmth you want and you can fold it neatly in the front to an arrow so that your jacket/cardigan/coat can be closed easily over it – perfect against the cold autumn winds when you explore the little wilderness behind the lake with your dogs.
The cowl is crocheted in the rnd and I show you a method for a straight seam – very simple :).
Mostly a cowl for the male crocheter out there, it may also look nice on a woman’s neck. Just choose the colors you like, especially contrasting complementary colors let the pattern pop!
