Popcorn Shell Cowl/Ear Warmer
Free Cowl Crochet Pattern
This is a simple pattern that allows you to make a cowl, or an ear warmer. The yarn used is 1 ball of Red Heart Soft Touch, but you can easily substitute other yarns. The instructions are given for an ear warmer that measures a circumference of about 24 inches. To make the circumference smaller or larger simply increase or decrease the beginning chains in multiples of 10.
Thank you to all those who let me know about the printing problems. I think the "Print Friendly" code is working again. Not sure what the problem was but it should be working now. Let me know if you still run into issues.
And you can still right click and select print. It will give you a clean ad-free layout of the page. After you select print you can change the destination in the top left and save it as a PDF, fax it, or send it to your Google Drive. :)
