This Winter Lilac Cowl is a tall cowl that when worn will gather at your neck keeping you warm and comfortable. It’s also not as long as other cowls making it great for wearing just underneath your coat. It’s a quick and easy cowl to work up using stitch combinations resembling the “V” you see in knit projects.

NOTES
• Ch1 does not equal a stitch. Place your first stitch of each round in the same st and through both loops.
• You can make your cowl longer by crocheting a longer FHDC. You can also make it taller or shorter by repeating the pattern row however many times you desire.
• To make your “V” stand out more, change colors at the beginning of each sl st row, which is row 2.
