Crochet Cowl Patterns
Crochet cowls are similar to scarves, but instead of being super long, they're often circular and kept snug around the neck. Crochet cowls and infinity scarves are the same basic accessory except that crochet infinity scarves can be wrapped around your neck multiple times while you can't often do that with cowl.
Either way, crochet cowls are the perfect accessory for winter since you can wear one under a coat to stay warm without the extra bulk of a looped-around crochet scarf. Find our favorite crochet cowl patterns below!
