Twists and Bows Cowl Relaunch

A free Crochet Pattern

I am relaunching one of my crochet patterns. It will now be a free crochet pattern.I was looking back at older posts and I noticed that this pattern did not get a lot of love. It only had 100 page views. All the fault is on me. This is one of the patterns that I tried selling on etsy. I made 3 dollars. I switched all the patterns to free, but somehow I missed this one, and everyone else is missing out on it.

I love this cowl. It is one that I still wear even 3 years later. It has lots of texture and volume. Also the extra glitter in the yarn makes it oh so feminine.

This is a great textured Cowl. It has defined cables on one side and on the other side it has bows. I made this peice into a cowl to show off both sides of the fabric. This is a very easy pattern. If you know how to fpdc and bpdc you can make this pattern. And if you can not this is a great pattern to learn how to on. I also love the sequins in this yarn it adds just a little bit of sparkle.

  1. I would love to try this pattern, I suppose there should be a beginning chain but I can't find the mention of one. Maybe this is my oversight or maybe this is why this one didn't sell well. Could you respond to this comment with a chain count please since I can't seem to find it?
