Textured Crochet Cowl Free Pattern

How about this beautiful, textured crochet cowl free pattern, I love everything about this one. From the feel of the yarn (it is amazing) to the warmth from the cowl and the color of the yarn is out of this world.

If you want a little snug textured crochet cowl, you might love this one. The other thing is that you can totally make this wider or even more fitted!

It is refreshing to know that I am not the only one who loves this textured crochet cowl, my kids also approve.

As part of the winter wonderland hop, you get the free download of this pattern today only!

The yarn used for this prototype is just so perfect. It glides off the hook and in no time, I have completed this project. Although, the braided chains would look more beautiful if made with a yarn with a single shade.
