Alice Button Cowl, Free Crochet Cowl Pattern

Free Crochet Cowl Pattern

Another gorgeous crochet pattern that works up quick! I love everything about this cowl from the coconut shell buttons to the yarn and last but not the least the stitch pattern. It took me just two skeins of Big Twist yarn and it was one of those patterns that grew a mile a minute. Perfect for impatient people like me! Though the color of this yarn was perfect it was so hard to capture it on camera. I love the name of the yarn color too, Cinnamon. The cloudy day didn't help at all. I finally had to make my mannequin lie down to get some decent shots. 

Crochet Pattern
1. Worsted weight yarn. I used Cinnamon from Big Twist yarns 
2. Hook- H (5mm)
3. Yarn needle for weaving in the yarn tails
