Work this twisted cowl crochet pattern up in one or more colors. I chose two colors, but it’s versatile so you can easily choose as many as you like to clean up your yarn stash.
The pattern is given in two sizes, a short and a long cowl, that you can wear in several different ways. A stitch multiple is also provided so you can easily make this to a custom fit as well.
And because it’s so easy to adjust in size, you can easily substitute your favorite yarn and hook sizes and adjust your starting chains accordingly.

Instructions are given for the small cowl, with special instructions for the large cowl in parenthesis.

Change color after each round and carry it up instead of fastening off.
