Thank you so much to Red Heart for providing me with this beautiful worsted weight yarn: Super Saver Stripes (affiliate link) in the Cool Stripe colorway. It’s a new color that’s just come out onto the market, and perfect for so many projects.

If you enjoy the regular super saver yarn, then you will love these new colors. They are cheerful and bright, and eliminate the work of having to color co-ordinate your crochet projects.

For this cowl I decided to make it short and wide simply because I liked the texture of the fabric on both sides, and when folded over you can see both textures. However, the pattern is easy to adjust in size and can be crocheted long and narrow for a double wrap. Or, crochet it long and wide for a super scarf. The choice is yours!
