This Clear Water Cowl is a great crochet accessory that you can wear with a variety of outfits! It’s easy design that is worked in a fingering weight yarn.
A little while ago I was sent some beautiful hand dyed, fingering weight yarn as a gift from https://woolinterrupted.com.
The yarn is a fingering/lightweight yarn. It’s very soft and a combination of super wash Merino and Bamboo. I love working with both fibres so it is a great combination!
I tend to be attracted to blues, and I love the different hues in this colour way that I used for the cowl. It reminds me of water!
This cowl is a light weight cowl. I can see it warn as an accessory with your favourite top, or while out on the town worn over a favourite coat.
It is a simple design featuring only a couple of stitches. You will be well familiar with the half double crochet stitch, and the crossed double crochet stitch, although intimidating at first is really quite simple once you get the hang of it.
A free video tutorial can be found following the written crochet pattern below!
The pattern is worked in rounds. I’ve paired the yarn with a 3.75 mm crochet hook. For this project you may use any fingering (#1) weight yarn and if you need to change the size of your cowl, you can simply adjust your foundation chain by multiples of two.
Pattern PDFs are also available!
