Here is the cowl to go with the Frolic Hat that was published earlier this week. I made it long and wide enough so you can wear it like a hooded cowl or as a regular cozy cowl. And it’s not pictured, but you could also wear this long if you wanted to.
The cowl has a nice textured edge, created by the Bead Stitch. The center is then crocheted simply with double crochet stitches.
It’s a very simple pattern that can be crocheted to any length that you want in a simple multiple of two.
