Cowls are a great accessory to add a little color to your outfit. They aren’t as bulky as a scarf can sometimes be, but are just enough to keep you warm on a cold winter’s day.
My Crochet Christmas Cowl is a quick make that you can stitch up in an evening. It has great texture and uses basic crochet stitches so I think it would be beginner friendly. I used I Love This Yarn in Red and a J/6mm hook to stitch up my cowl. I’ve included the pattern below along with a link to a free PDF if you’d like to easily print it.
