Simple & Comfy Cowl Scarf

Posted on October 18, 2015

This is a very simple crocheted cowl scarf. The crochet pattern is very easy to follow and works up quickly. I purchased one skein of Red Heart Black and one skein of Burgundy yarn and was able to make 3 scarves. I love how you can just loop it around your head twice and it creates such a nice looking scarf. Simple but cute and easy for a beginner too.

I have two different version of the scarf. The shorter cowl scarf is about 56 inches long and a longer one measures about 6 feet long.

Here are photos of both cowl scarves.
