Lotsa Beads Cowl
This cowl has a lovely and sturdy design that makes it great for pulling over the chin while out in the cold. And although it’s crocheted in a chunky yarn, it’s not too bulky to fit underneath your winter coat.
With that said, any yarn and hook size will work to crochet this. It’s a simple stitch multiple of two, so you can crochet this as long or as short as you like. It’s great for toddlers and up.
Crochet this in a single color, in two colors as shown, or in bright and cheerful rainbow colors!
