Crochet Cowl

I hope you guys aren't sick of scarves yet.  My sister in law had the cutest cowl on at Thanksgiving and although she bought it, I knew that I could find a pattern to make it myself.  So off I went to etsy where I found The Plumb Giraffe and her Elizabeth Bennet Cowl.  It looks so much like my SIL's scarf I had to try it out.
I had this super soft steel blue yarn I had gotten to make a baby blanket when I was pregnant with my first, yeah, like that happened.  But the yarn was perfect for this cowl!  I could not believe how quick it went, and it was so much fun! I learned a couple new stitches (I'm a pretty basic crocheter, so if mine turned out yours will too!) and was done in just a couple hours.  Really an experienced crocheter could probably knock this out in an hour.

I will definitely be making more of these in several colors! It's light enough that you can wear it in spring so I'm thinking a bright yellow.  Head over to The Purple Giraffe where you can get the pattern for $1.99! Seriously, a steal.  Grab some t-shirt yarn while your there, how cool is that!
