Make with a Cake Cosy Cowl – How to Crochet a Cowl

The unpredictable weather is possibly the only thing I dislike about Autumn, everything else from the crunch of crisp leaves under foot to the scent of bonfires I love with an absolute passion.

This chunky cowl has been specifically designed to keep you warm on those days when its just not cold enough for a heavy coat. 

This cowl can be styled over a lightweight jacket, a roll-neck jumper or simply paired with a denim jacket too. It adds not only a layer of warmth, but the opportunity to add your unique sense of style too!

The many different colour options that the Caron Chunky Cakes are available in really give you a way of making this stunning cosy cowl your own way. You can even choose to make it in a plain colour – I’d recommend PaintBox Yarns Simply Super Chunky – Click Here to view it.
