The Cara Louise Cowl is quick to make, really simple to follow, and can be worked in 3 different sizes!

This design is worked in joined rounds using basic crochet stitches like chain, single and slip stitch, and also uses a Bobble stitch for a gorgeous and textured look.

This is a great pattern because:

  • Accessories are quick and easy projects to work up, especially when you can use scrap yarn!
  • This cowl looks great when you use different colors!
  • This project is perfect for gifts!
  • You’ll get to practice a lot of crochet skills: Rounds, stitch tension, gauge & size, specialty stitches (like the Bobble), color changes, finishing techniques & more!
