A comforting crochet, this cowl was designed as a sister pattern to my original Anna’s Shawl, which was the very first crochet pattern I ever published, and to date, it’s been my most popular. The simple yet elegant cowl works great in a variety of yarns. I have crocheted samples using both a commercial yarn option (Lion Brand Shawl in a Cake) and a luxury yarn option (Fingering weight and Mohair held double). This pattern works up fast using simple chains and increases to create a bandana style cowl. Make one for yourself or for a friend who may just need a little comfort in their life.
