Crochet double sides cowl pattern

Spread the love

It was fun designing this crochet double-sides cowl pattern. But it’s even more, fun to use the finished cowl as it comes out super cozy and perfect for frosty weather.

I love that this reversible crochet cowl has a modern look to it. The added lace makes this even more helpful as you can style this cowl in multiple ways.

Check out the two-sided beanie with a lace trim, also a free pattern here on the blog.

The reversible crochet stitches are such an amazing way to use your simple crochet stitches to create a reversible project. The double-sided beanie and cowl patterns are my first set of reversible projects. Little wonders, I fell in love with creating textured projects and since have designed multiple reversible projects.

There is also a matching crochet beanie, with the added lace to its brim, both cowl and beanie make a perfect set of reversible for the cold season.

Since designing the double-sides crochet cowl, I have since fallen in love with the stitches used and have proceeded to design multiple projects.
