2020 Carolina FiberFest Craft-Along Crochet Pattern!

UPDATED 2022 to include a brand new version that features the 3-color change method to create a striping effect with three skeins of yarns, alternating between them at the end of each row. You will receive both pdf files with your purchase!

This design embraces the natural lean of crochet stitches to create a fun and unique cowl with simple stitches, which makes it beginner friendly but also still interesting for more experienced crocheters. Easily adaptable for a wide variety of yarn weights and types as well as size preferences, this piece is a highly versatile wardrobe staple! It can be worn right side up or upside down, buttoned, sewed closed, or fastened with a shawl pin. Add an additional skein or two of yarn and it becomes a full sized wrap!
