This cozy crochet cowl brings sweet colors to chilly days. The straightforward pattern of double-crochets and chains makes this piece fairly simple, and it’s quick enough to work up in time for a cold spell. While the cowl shown here is worked in a wool yarn, for an even warmer and softer cowl, try alpaca.
