Crossroads Cowl Pattern

I am pleased to announce that there will be a lot of growth happening this month within my Crossroads Collection. Inspired by my Crossroads Scarf and using my Crossroads Cozy as a jumping point, I have designed a cowl that will pair well with my soon to be released Crossroads Ear Warmer, Crossroads Twisted Ear Warmer or Crossroads Beanie.

Like my Crossroads Cozy pattern, I have used the link stitch and crossed double crochet stitch, joined and worked in the round from bottom up. I hope you’ll agree that the Crossroads Cowl is a beautiful wardrobe accessory making this a great crochet project and gift for your friends and family.

The adult sized Crossroads Cowl is available for free here on my blog. You can find my photo tutorial for the link stitch here and joining the link stitch here! If you prefer all the information and tips at your fingertips, I have included both photo tutorials in the paid pattern pdf for the Crossroads Cowl which is available in my Ravelry store! Enjoy!
