Crochet Cowls: The Perfect Winter Accessory

A cowl is the perfect winter accessory. If you want to keep your neck warm but not worry about the ends getting caught (like a scarf), a cowl is the way to go. They come in so many shapes, sizes, patterns, and colors, that you’re sure to find one that suits you. In order to help you find your perfect cowl, we’ve compiled a list of 7 cowls you can use to warm up, or even dress up, any outfit.

1. Riff Cowl

This electric-green wonder is perfect for adding a pop of color to any outfit. Wear it long or wrap it around your neck for extra warmth.

2. Swoopy Cowl

If you like post stitches, this is the cowl for you. Not only are they used to create a ribbing at the bottom, you’ll also find them throughout the body, forming a wavy pattern.

3. Fable Cowl

Two-color Tunisian crochet—that’s what makes this cowl so awesome. Well, that and the fact that the stitches that are used make the pattern flow like the twists and turns in your favorite fairy tale.
