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.

Functional Elegance Cowl

A free Crochet Pattern


Lace is one of my favorite things to make with crochet. Lace does not keep you warm in the winter and those colder months though. I wanted a pattern that showed of my lace skills but still kept me warm for those transitional months from winter into spring.

This cowl was inspired by the decor using burlap with an overlay of lace. Do you know what I'm talking about? I love all those ball glass jar candles wrapped with burlap and lace. They are so pretty.

I kept the lace simple. It is an 8 stitch repeat, so If you want it longer or shorter you can increase or decrease by 8. Also I started this pattern with foundation stitches instead of chains because there are so many. If you are more comfortable with starting with a chain make sure you start with 203 chs to make your starting dc.
