Basic Crochet Cowl Pattern

Hi Everyone!

Back again with another basic crochet pattern. This cowl can be adjusted to any length and width. You just have to adjust how many chains you start with and how many rows you do. I made this using Red Heart’s Boutique Unforgettable yarn in the Winery colour. This yarn is a little hard to work with, but once you get used to it, the colours of the yarn are really quite nice.
