Lionbrand has 3000 free crochet and knit patterns! This is their 'Fast and Easy Cowl,' and it is just that, and beautiful as well. It is crocheted of Lionbrand Amazing, a light worsted weight yarn that is 53% wool, 47% acrylic.
It was heavenly to crochet with, light and soft, and self stripes beautifully. The cowl took 2 skeins, so it is also fairly easy on the budget.
The reason there are four of me (one is more than enough!) is to demonstrate the different ways this can be worn. A lovely, versatile, warm bit of wearable art :-)
Enjoy the crochet!
