Modern Cowl Crochet Pattern
When the leaves start changing, I start pulling the pile of scarves out of my closet. In my opinion, you can never have too many. They go with everything and make great gifts.
The most recent addition to my collection is the Modern Cowl. The colors are what really sets it apart from my other scarves.
It’s completed in a mix of blues and blue-greens. The Plymouth Hot Cake yarn offers 6 colors in one and it’s all machine washable. It’s a big design without having to weave in all the ends and shift colors. The pattern specifically calls for the Denim Mix Hot Cake.
You can get access to this yarn and a digital pdf pattern in the new crochet kit I put together. These kits streamline the process so you can have your cowl as soon as possible. You can grab yours here and start working on your new project.
The colors in the cowl make it really stand out, as does the unique backloop only stitch. The whole scarf is worked in this decorative stitch, so it’s a quick project.
