Is it Knit? Basic Crochet Cowl


Rhondda Mol, Oombawka Design


This pattern is customizable to any yarn/hook combination.

The cowl pictured is the one I made for myself – I wanted one that was long enough to pull-up to cover my head during our cold Canadian winters.

I have included popular sizes for cowls from small to extra large and in various heights – using the instructions provided you can create you own preferred size – or follow the specific instructions to duplicate my cowl pattern – right down to the drawstring closure.

Enjoy 🙂
