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.
