Angel’s Thorn Cowl ~
Free Crochet Pattern
This cowl is a stash buster and requires some experience because of the Bullion stitch. My little brother came up with my pattern name. It is a short close fit cowl which will keep the cold air away from your neck. It can be pulled up to protect your nose and mouth from the cold air. It is quick to make and could be given as a gifts in favorite colors. This cowl is a great stash or scrap buster as any worsted weight #4 will work.
