I know it’s officially spring but it has been so cold here that I decided to whip up a lightweight crochet cowl that I could wear on these chilly spring days.
Read on down to find the free cowl pattern!
I worked this up in an evening and it only took a minimal amount of yarn so it’s the perfect stash buster!
I decided to use Bernat Softee Baby Yarn in Grey Marl since it has an airy and soft texture. Plus, I love the fact that the Grey Marl is the perfect color choice for transitioning to spring.
