Tree Farm Cowl

A Free Crochet Pattern




We have now entered into the layering season and I am all here for it. I wanted to make a cowl that was easy to make, lots of texture and extra long to loop it around twice. This is the finished product. The Tree Farm Cowl is really easy to follow once you get the repeats down. There are only 2 rows to remember so you don't have to constantly be looking at the pattern to know what to do next.

For the yarn, I recommend using a size 4 or 5 yarn that is soft and slightly fuzzy.
