Top of the Flock: 5 cowls to keep you toasty!
If you get a little bored making a whole scarf, cowls are a great alternative. They’re a unique and cosy trend, they look great, and crochet up quite quickly. Here are five of our favourite patterns from our Flock members.
Made from super chunky/bulky yarn, this cowl was created by Olivia of Hopeful Honey because she thought it might be “socially ‘weird’ to walk around everywhere with a ginormous blanket wrapped around your shoulders.” Cowls are the next best thing!
This stylish cowl by The Firefly Hook combines influences from the American West with the urban style of Minneapolis. The pattern uses Madelinetosh Pashmina yarn in the wonderfully-named shade of “Whiskey Barrel.” This blend of 75% superwash merino wool, 15% silk, and 10% cashmere is sure to be incredibly comfortable.
The Zuma Cowl by Potter & Bloom is a great cowl for beginner crocheters, or anyone looking for something quick-and-easy to whip up. Using super chunky/bulky yarn, this pattern combines four granny squares for a great-looking cowl.
I love the look and pattern of this cowl, achieved through the broomstick lace stitch. This stitch is quite unique, as it uses a crochet hook and a large knitting needle, which can also be replaced by (you guessed it!) a broomstick! The three buttons add a nice finishing touch to this elegant pattern from Petals to Picots.
This wonderfully-coloured cowl by Little Doolally uses just one skein of Malabrigo Worsted 100% merino wool yarn. This simple pattern is great for a quick gift, and being merino wool, you know it’s going to warm and comfy!
