I love this Slanted Puffs Cowl! I so need this one in my collection of cowls. The pattern is well written and easy to follow so it should come out nicely! I really like the puff stitch it makes a nice warm material. I'm looking forward to making and wearing this cowl. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet cowl pattern.

Awesome cowl. I love that it is made with cotton yarn. Cotton is so much softer on the skin than the worsted weight acrylic yarns. The special stitch used in this project is the puff stitch, but if you have been crocheting for a little while then you have probably already mastered this stitch. Its very easy to learn.

This is an amazing cowl pattern. There are so many yarn colors available, you can make this in your favorite, or the favorite color of your good friends to give them as a gift. This would really help people stay warm in the winter! What is your favorite cowl pattern?

The skill level for this slanted puffs cowl is intermediate and after reading the directions, I can see why. I like that the designer has used a fine weight yarn. I think the texture that is clearly visible is worth attempting to make this.

Some of my favorite patterns are those that the designer gives you multiple ways to crochet the item. I love this slanted puffs stitch cowl because of the texture. This is perfect to keep the neck warm during the colder months ahead.

The slanted puffs stitches is just appropriate for this Slanted Puffs Cowl because it gives texture to the cowl making it functional as cover for the neck area this coming cold months. This will also look good in vibrant or earth colors.

This is a very pretty stitch pattern, but with a full fledge Puff Stitch (7 loops on the hook), its probably going to be a Yarn Eater. Definitely worth it if you want something warm and snuggly, but maybe not if youre just looking for an interesting accessory. The repetitive stitch isnt at all difficult. I worked up a small swatch to see how the slants lined up and was pleased with the results.

I agree, however, why not make your puff stitch with less loops? I have done this many times because as you mentioned, puffs are yarn eaters. Try using five loops instead of seven. Works just as well...

I never thought of making a cowl with cotton yarn but there is a first time for everything. I would think it is light around your neck, good for the office. I have the yarn, I will have to make it. The instructions are easy to follow. Thank you.

The puff stitch is such a fun stitch to create and to look at. Yes, it uses up more yarn per inch than the usual double crochets, but you will be creating such a beautiful texture in your project. This blue could even qualify as a good neutral because it is so light colored and seems like a mix of a cool tone and warm tone at the same time. In just 19 rows you will have this cowl for yourself!
