The textured cowl pattern, shared in this post, is such a rewarding crochet pattern, and you will be amazed how quickly you'll progress.
This past winter, I discovered that I don't have a scarf or cowl in navy. Since navy is my favourite colour to wear, I almost felt naked!
Because I crocheted the pattern stitch just before, my choice for the pattern was a no-brainer. In our little town, there is only one yarn shop and you kind of 'buy-and-use-what-you-get'. Luckily I came across the Elle yarn in "JEANS" and I am quite chuffed with my new make.
Why not make something for yourself for a change?
How to crochet a textured cowl - and be smart wearing it!

pattern for the TEXTURED CROCHETed cowl
The pattern is in US terms.
Chain 36 + 2
1st row: 2dc into third chain from the hook, *sk 2 chains, (sc, 2dc) in next chain, repeat from *to last 3ch, sk2 chains, 1sc in last ch, 2ch, turn;
2nd row: 2dc into first sc (of previous row), *(sc, 2dc) into next sc, rep from * to end, sc in last dc-ch (from previous row), 2ch, turn.
Repeat row 2 througout until the cowl is the desired length.
I am short, and the 70" allows me to twist and wear the cowl double around my neck.
Measure yours as you go.
Cast off and sew the two short edges together. (You can either twist and then sew the edges or keep it straight and sew it).
Weave in the ends.

Well done - you finished one cowl!
