The Blueberry Lemonade Cowl is a cotton cowl perfect for spring and summer when you need a little warmth on your neck in the morning or evening. This lovely, textured pattern is also beautiful addition to your wardrobe when worn long.

4.5mm/7 crochet hook*

6oz/306yds of medium #4 worsted weight cotton yarn, I used two balls of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton in Paris in June

yarn needle,* scissors

I used the ever versatile v-stitch in this one, paired with the slanting cluster or bead stitch. Never fear if these are new stitches to you I have tutorials for both of them-listed in the “Stitches” section. 

This cowl pattern is worked width wise so you’ll be increase the length as you go, which means it’s easy to adjust the length. You may also choose to leave yours as a scarf, and not sew the ends together to form the cowl. I like options! I used to two balls of yarn, but one ball also gave me a small, one loop cowl. I’ve included the stitch multiple if you would like to adjust the width of your cowl. 

While this pattern was written for the yarn and hook I list below, it is also appropriate for other weights & fibers-not just cotton. Your yarn usage may vary if you make changes to the yarn and hook, so make sure you have plenty. As this cowl pattern isn’t super open, it would also work well in wool for colder weather, when that comes back around.
