"This beautiful lace crochet cowl pattern works up quickly with bulky Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. You can make this cowl and the matching Mermaid Tears Beanie with one ball! The pretty shells and V stitches cast a net of lace that creates a breathable cowl that's coastal cool, but still keeps you warm. Pictured in Lion Brand Scarfie in the Cream and Teal Colorway, but would look amazing in your favorite solid color as well. The coordinating Mermaid Tears Beanie is pictured in Lion Brand Landscapes, which is a lighter (4) weight yarn, but I achieved the same gauge for both yarns using the L/8mm hook."

One would think for as long as those "color changing" yarns have been around that I would have used them by now. I am so behind the times. This Lion Brand Scarie Yarn creates a beautiful cowl here. There are some stitches here that I have not used but other than that I am anxious to attempt to make this mermaid tears cowl.

This cowl is beautiful and it is great to know by using the Lion Brand scarfie yarn without a lot of color changes I can have this beautiful piece for myself. There are a few special stitches used in this pattern but I am sure a few google searches will get you up to speed in how to make them. It is also nice to know there are matching piece to this cowl.

This Mermaid Tears Cowl is beautiful, unique. The colors used here are chosen carefully. It's nice.

I can tell the cowl is made using the Scarfie yarn. I almost would prefer that my cowl be made with the Lion Brand Landscapes like her Mermaid Tears Beanie was made with. I can envision what it would look like over my tunics in my closet. Stunning and beautiful! It used to be dragon tears and now everyone is making mermaid tears.

This is such a unique cowl!From the ombre mix of colors to the interesting shape of the edging, I'm sure this will bring in tons of compliments.

This is a very pretty stitch pattern, and well worth your time in learning it. I love the addition of the picot edging at the bottom of the cowl. The neck is wide enough to fit easily over your head, but is still snug enough to be warm and cuddly. It looks spectacular with that Scarfie yarn, but it would be lovely with a pastel just to show off the interesting texture.
