Coraline on Times Square Free Cowl Crochet Pattern

Coraline on Times Square Free Cowl Crochet Pattern

Coraline on Times Square free cowl crochet pattern

Here it is! My second new favorite…. When I started my Coraline in Morocco Cowl, I just knew I needed to try some variations and I could not stick to any single one, and so there were two. (Find the Coraline in Morocco Cowl HERE and see the difference in width by scrolling down the page past the pattern.)

I know she'll love it! Coraline travels solo and goes wherever the culture leads. Yes. It's CORAline, not Caroline. She's headed to New York this week and loved the cowl I made for her while she was in Morocco. She wanted this one a little bit wider and she should get it just in time. She doesn’t crochet, but I’m sending her this cowl.

The first image shows Coraline on Times Square loose around the neck while the second image is folded and up on the shoulders. This 2-skein pattern works up quickly and is easy intermediate.

I love this pattern. I can't wait to get the yarn to make this for myself. I rarely find stuff I make for myself. This is topping the list!

I just found and came across this beautiful cowl. I've been looking FOREVERER for a pattern and the yarn it is made with . I found the reflective yarn from the Red Heart website, ordered some-made the cowl, and everybody keeps asking me where did I bought at. THANK U SO VERY MUCH FOR _WRITING AND PUTTING IT ON YOUR WEBSITE. I have not stopped making them, and all the office girls are lined up with their yarn, and telling them give me a couple of weeks, as I do need a break once in a while. EVERY PERSIN SHOULD HAVE ONE OF THESE SCARFS, I have a few in different colors. Again thank you, for posting this pattern. Thanks again, Kelly

This is a beautiful scarf. It's next on my list of items to make. Have you made it in a chunky yarn? Just wondering how that would look.

Hi, Jennifer ~ Red Heart Reflective is technically a bulky yarn. (I forgot to add that, but will.) I'd love to see it done in something a little chunkier than this. Great idea!
