Free Crochet Cable Cowl Pattern!
I am ecstatic to be finally able to share what I have been working on for a while! The crochet cable cowl has amazing texture on the front side (created by the fun crochet cable stitch I used) Serious chunkiness!
Meanwhile, the crochet stitch from the front creates an interesting design on the back which means it’s so versatile that it could be worn both ways!
The Lion Brand Yarn That’s Perfect for this Cabled Cowl!
To make my crochet cowl I used Wool spun from Lion Brand Yarn in Orchid which is an amazing heather fuchsia pink color. It Reminds you of spring right?? I think this is my new favorite color!
Update 2019 this yarn is no longer widely available.
As a replacement, I would suggest using Color Made Easy Yarn by Lion Brand! It has some of the same qualities and soft yarn feel as the original fiber I used.
Enough chit-chat…. read on down to get started today on your new favorite cowl pattern!
Happy Crocheting Friends!
