Our crochet cowl today is worked as one piece from the bottom up. The pattern is worked in rounds and features rows of bobble stitches that are spaced between rows of half double crochet stitches that are worked in the third loop. If you are intimidated by the third loop or the bobble stitches, do not worry! I have a free video tutorial following the written pattern below that will walk you through the steps.
The pattern will be written out in full below here on my blog for free, however if you would like to add this pattern to your library or purchase an ad free PDF, you may do so from my Etsy and Ravelry Shops linked below:
