Well, this is one of my attempts to use up my "winter" yarn stash before spring officially arrives. There's some white left, but it's rapidly melting away and the air is unusually warm. Hopefully there will be a few more cold days sprinkled in there for cowls.

I designed this cowl to be a bit "drapey" and loose around the neck. Great for running about town, in and out of the car, warm, but not "arctic warm". The same pattern could be worn by an adult, it would simply be a bit snugger around the neck.

Total Time: 2 hours or less

Yield: 1


  • 1 ball "Loops and Threads", Charisma #5 yarn in the color - Eggplant
  • "J" crochet hook
  • scissors
  • embroidery needle
