FREE Crochet Cowl Pattern
Here is another chained picots necklace cowl. It differs from the previous cowl as it’s joined at each round. It is great for the summer or winter because you decide how full you want it. Thus, it can be worn as a necklace cowl or as a cozy winter cowl.
The cowl is shown short with one wrap, but you could easily crochet it longer for a second wrap or wear it down to your waist if you wanted to.
It’s basically like one long chain, but each round is joined with a slip stitch in the first single crochet. That way you can wear it with or without the optional wrap to hold it together. The first image below shows the cowl with the wrap worn off to the side.
The image below shows the cowl without the optional wrap. It’s just the bone ring buttons attached to the single crochet seam. This is actually my preferred way of wearing it… but….
You can also hide the buttons at the back for a nice full look at the front. It’s great if you have long hair, or if you plan on wearing it under a coat.
