It’s another day & another opportunity to share a FREE crochet pattern, the crochet Cozy Cowl.
This is an amazing last minute Christmas gift idea & I’m sure you’re going to love it.
To crochet this cowl you can use any super bulky yarn. So go grab some you’ve already have stashed or go grab some in your local yarn store.
The name comes from the fact that it is made to fit closely to your neck. Giving the optimal warmth & you can wear it under any coat or jacket when it is freezing outside.
To crochet this cowl I used yarn from Ice Yarn. The yarn is called Pure Wool & comes in 100 g skeins.
I love the thickness of this yarn & the natural toned colorways.
THE PERFECT LAST MINUTE CROCHET PROJECT
The Cozy Cowl is definitely a great last minute crochet project.
Weather you’re late to start and finish a crochet present or you simply need something to keep warm during a cold winter day.
This cowl is the perfect neck warmer to keep warm, as it fits closely to your neck.
Since you like the Cozy Cowl, these might interest you too?
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.
