The Beginner-Friendly Crochet Cowl
While working on my “How to Crochet” series, I wanted to provide several beginner-friendly patterns to help new crocheters practice. Plus, I wanted to show beginners how many items they could make with just crocheted squares and rectangles.
This crochet cowl is made super cute by using a self-striping yarn. It will also look great as a simple color or with a variegated yarn. This pattern could not be simpler to make, just crochet a rectangle and sew a seam.
