The Yarn thats perfect for this simple cowl
I decided to use my go-to yarn, Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice because of the beautiful color choices available. I wanted a color blocked look, so I picked three of my favorite colors and started working! If color blocking isn’t for you (weaving in ends), then this can be made in one color instead. 🙂
For the design shown, I used the colorways pink, raspberry, and charcoal. Feel free to mix up your color choices to create something that is uniquely yours.
The Crochet Stitch
To crochet this cowl, you will need to know one stitch! The Single Crochet! If you can single crochet, then you can make this easy crochet cowl quickly! Promise. Read on down to get started, and I hope you enjoy this simple crochet design! Also, don’t forget to have fun with all the color possibilities!
Happy Crocheting Friends!
