Berry Harvest Crochet Cowl
The Berry Harvest Crochet Cowl is a stunning, intricate piece with fun style variations. Whether you wear it like a shawl, pin it with a button to make a bandana cowl, or shrink it to make a hair bandana, this free crochet cowl pattern doesn't need any other accessories to stand out. Wearable crochet makes it possible to achieve a visually dynamic draped effect without weighing your neck down with heavy chain accessories. The variegated yarn looks stunning in these shades of purple, and the lace pattern makes it seem so light and airy. The crochet cowl pattern is a fun play on a poncho, and it would look great over a simple blouse or tank top.

Wow. This is gorgeous. I like the stitches used here and the way the cowl points down on the bodice. I also like the turtle neck style collar. But I can imagine this piece extending down and to the sides as a poncho and no longer a cowl.

For some reason, I always forget about blcoking my finished project! I know how important it is for this particular shawl, as well. I love that it is a mini shawl, a bandana shawl. The small size (therefore the less bulk) is prefect for right now, with temps in the 40's. I don't want to keep wearing all my heavy scarves! Plus, the color looks like fresh picked berries in the springtime -)

Ive seen entire shawls made with a similar pattern, but I took a pass on them because they take so much time. Im much more willing to give this a go especially since its a Moogly Blog project. That means the pattern is tested, theres an instructional video (my first stop), and plenty of photos and tips for success. I opted for the .pdf download instead of printing out so I can use my tablet.

I have been looking for something like this for awhile. Almost all of your free patterns are beautiful but they are not quite right for Florida, where I live. The word wool would send people running. So when I see a pattern like this one I am very happy. It's light weight, open and rather easy. Thank you!
