This beautiful granny motif cowl can be whipped up in a day or two for those last-minute gifts that we all need at forgotten birthdays and missed holidays. The cowl is constructed of grannies that are joined as you go and the edging is added last in a simple chain stitch. Make it in two colorways as shown to highlight the beauty of the colors or make it in one color to show off the granny motifs inside. Wear it wrapped close around your neck for cold days, or loose and open for warm ones. As in all the crochet by faye patterns, all motifs and such are written and diagrammed for the ease of the crocheter.
