A Beautifully Textured Crochet Cowl Pattern
Here is another cozy cowl neckwarmer. I just love the infinity look with a cozy fit around the neck. It’s a great match with any outfit from casual to elegant evening wear.
The thing with infinity scarves is that you get a two-toned look on the fabric if you work it in the round. It’s a nice wide cowl, and when you give it that extra fold-over you get a beautiful textured look all around.
But, the fabric looks great on both sides, making this the perfect cowl to increase to any length for a nice over-sized or a cozy hooded cowl if you wanted to.
