With winter fast approaching the shimmering snow cowl will get you in the mood for all things chilly and blustery. Read on down to find the free shimmering snow cowl pattern. Yarn for this post was generously supplied by Lion Brand Yarn through a collaboration. Thank you!
Winter is my favorite time of year! I love the white snow, sled riding and hot cocoa by the fire! Every night my family is snuggled up together (to keep warm) talking about our day and just spending quality time together. Not only is the perfect time of year for family but it is also the perfect time to make cozy things with yarn! I designed this oversize cowl using Lion Brand Yarns Shawl in a Ball in the colorway Om OPAL. When I first saw this shimmering yarn It instantly reminded me of winter the most sparkly time of year! ❄️
I started the shimmering snow cowl by working in the round which is a great way to make a cowl because it works up smoothly and much faster! (In my opinion) I then proceeded to do a combination of single crochets and half double crochets to give it a nice texture. The Om Opal colorway is really makes it stand out too because of the ombre effect. Since this pattern uses simple stitches like the half double crochet and single crochet this would be great for any level crocheter to crochet! I try to make my patterns simple enough for everyone to enjoy and quick enough to finish up within a few days which is always a win win in my book! 🙂
This design also happens to be part of Lion Brand Yarns 12 weeks of Christmas promotion featuring not only my design, but also those of some of my yarn blogger friends too! Lion Brand has made each and every one of our patterns (including mine!) into kits that include the yarn. How awesome is that? Psstt… THEY ARE ON SALE too until December 24th!
