This chunky charisma cowl is perfect for a last minute gift. It’s not only stylish, but it works up really quick too. It’s crocheted with Loops and Thread Charisma and a 10mm crochet hook, but because the stitch is so simple, you could crochet this in any type of yarn.
You can wear this as a scarf, as a cowl, or as a hooded cowl. It’s a bit snug when wearing it as a hood; but it’s snug around the chin area so it keeps my face nice and warm when walking in the cold. You can crochet this cowl to any length you want by increasing the beginning chains in multiples of two.
