This is a very nice cowl for an evening out. Unfortunately, it calls for a yarn that I havent seen yet, but Ill keep an eye out for it. The cowl is worked lengthwise (the designer has included a wonderful symbol chart) but instead of the first two rows being Chain and Single Crochet, theres no reason you couldnt swap that out for a Foundation Single Crochet instead.

I see that this yarn has been discontinued, but you can just add the sequence on if you want. I like the look of this cowl and think it would look great in a shimmery yarn. The written pattern for this Soft Swanky Cowl is well written and easy to follow and I'm glad there is a chart to show how to do this one. After reading the comments on the pattern page I see some are having a problem at the end of row 3 and 4, the writer say they need to count the stitches, some missed stitches in their count. I'm going to try this and hope it works out. Just wondering what yarn to use? Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

First, I thought this cowl had crochet sequence in the pattern, then I read it is Red Heart Boutique Swanky yarn. I clicked on the link and it comes in 7 colors and it is so beautiful crochet in anything, a cowl, blouse, shawl, tunic, even wall art! I love it and cant wait to use it.

I love this yarn! I have made numerous scarfs in different colors In the Swanky. People have asked me where I bought it, then when I tell them I made it, they reply, "you sewed all of these sequins on here?" But this pattern has me a bit confused. I'm just wondering if it's really meant to be a multiple of 11? I started with 121 stitches, but when I get to the end of row 3, there's no room between the last 2 Vs and the first 3DCs

The instant I saw this Soft Swanky Cowl pattern this morning I grabbed some suitable yarn from my stash and by this afternoon I had a gorgeous new cowl. My photo does not want to upload but anyway the only change I made was to the width. I made it 2,5 times wider because I wanted a more substantial cowl and I did not add the sequins although I may still do that. The finished cowl is great, cozy and warm and is going to be a favorite this coming winter.
