Crochet Cowl Pattern, Celestia Triangle Cowl

Crochet Boho Cowl Pattern

Crochet Triangle Cowl Pattern

Crochet Cowl Pattern

Who wouldn't love a cowl in this cold weather? This crochet pattern has been designed keeping both style and ease of use in mind. Since it is a cowl, you just have to slip it on and you are ready to go, unlike triangle shawls that need to be wrapped around your neck. The fringe adds a Boho touch that I adore, but if you are not a fringe girl, you can opt not to add them. 

I love the one I made with a variegated yarn and the light grey. The green turned out too dark and was not really showing the stitch pattern. So I suggest you use light colors for this pattern. Which cowl did you like the best?

* The pattern is written in standard American terms.
*The pattern comes in 3 sizes, Toddler, Child, and Adult.
* Any light worsted weight yarn like Redheart stripes, Lion Brand Heartland or Lion Brand Wool-ease would work well. 
* Hook J(6mm) was used for the samples.
