This impactful granny stitch cowl is made to look like a shawl. Brilliant for those who get annoyed with their scarf unravelling all the time! It makes a great stash-buster too.

To bring the most ubiquitous of crochet stitches up to date a linen stitch edging has been added, giving it a modern twist.

This pattern is suitable for beginners. A chart is included.
