A simple cowl. You can use other colors but it is fun in the Christmas colors. Would not take long to crochet.

After reading the author's notes on the cowl, please know that this "Single Skein Christmas Cowl" pattern is meant for a little girl. I would extend the length from a 30" to at least a 50" for an adult female. But you know what? I love it in the Christmas colors! It's retro, kitschy, and it's meant to draw attention.

What a beautiful and festive cowl. I really like the scalloped edges and the fact that the colors are used in different amounts giving the scarf a creative look. Do you have a pattern for the hat or gloves. I can see pairing these up with a solid green or red set with a few embellishments to make it more fun.

Every little girl needs a Christmas Cowl, and this pattern is the perfect one. It is so easy and well written, and the end result is absolutely adorable. It's easy to adjust the size for an adult if you want to make matching mother/daughter. I bought a skein of each color, red, green, and white and I'm going to make as many as I can out of them.

This is just so cute! It reminds me of holly leaves and berries in the snow. I'm not overly fond of ripple patterns in general--chalk it up to having lived through the 70s ripple afghan craze, but this little cutie might just change my mind. Thinking about how to add jingle bells on the red part.

I love the pattern to this cowl, but I would make it in different collors because I would want to wear whenever it is chilly. I agree with what Cheryl says, that because it uses 3 colors you have to have three skeins, but because you don't need a full skein, you could easily pick partial balls from your stash. You could also change the color changes to incorporate as manh colors as you wanted. I will definitely try this pattern.

I like the look of this Single Skein Christmas Cowl, but the name is so wrong.. There are 3 different colors in this Cowl so even though it doesn't use the whole skein it does take 3 colors to make. With that being said it is very well written and a easy read. I can see this pattern coming out quickly and would make a great gift for anyone. The pattern is for a child and can be made for a adult as well. I like the idea of doubling the the stitch count and making a longer one to wrap around for the cold winter days. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I whipped this up at work in no time, stylish and very festive. Thank you so much for sharing!
