Beautiful and Feminine Crochet Cowls
Share this post with friends

Shawls, scarves, wraps… they all are great, but when it comes to fuss-free neck warmers, cowls are the winners. You can basically wrap them around your neck with one hand when rushing out in the morning, and don’t be afraid that it will open up or fall off while running.

Cowls are very easy to make and feature a lot of different stitches, so you can find one that will be suitable for your needs and skills. They are perfect for holiday getaways and outdoor adventures, but also everyday errands in the city. Elegant or relaxed, soft and lacy or chunky and warm? You get to choose the best style for yourself. Take a look at examples below to check the current trends and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.
