One Skein Cowl Crochet Pattern

We created this crochet cowl pattern with a sense of adventure in mind. We love to travel and experience new places so we made this cowl for you to bring along on your journey. It’s simple and versatile, just the kind of thing you need when you’re on the go. And not such a bad idea for a crochet accessory that you can keep at home for everyday wear, too.

Like the name says, you’ll only need one skein of yarn to crochet this cowl – it’s the perfect one-skein crochet pattern. So in addition to everything else, it’s budget-friendly, too. You might want to pick up three or for skeins and go to town. It’s simple and easy, so why not make a few? These crochet cowls make a great last-minute gift as well as a fast, fun crochet project to use up your leftover skeins of yarn.

Get your favorite color, or go for an ombre yarn to add some depth to the crochet pattern. Slip this cowl on and you’re ready to go for the day. Just be prepared for all the compliments you’re about to receive.
