Actually, it really isn't. It's getting to be too warm to wear toasty cowls. But, I finally buckled down, sewed in threads and photographed a few I've made over the last few months.
pattern, I just happened to be in the store at the same time as Shelli, the designer, and she generously shared all her modifications (the broken rib stitch and the slit at the top).
Chi-Town Crochet Cowl, a free pattern. Quick, easy and fun to make. There's a twist in this one. The cowl is actually crocheted flat and sewn together at the end, that's when the twist is added.
pattern suggests, used more stitches and it works, sort of. I think I just might re-do this one, using yet more stitches and a larger hook. Not my favorite thing to do, but sometimes you just have to.
