Pinecrest Cowl-A Free Pattern

 

If you don’t know already, Salty Pearl Crochet and the Unraveled Mitten are hosting a Christmas Hat CAL! I’m one of the participating designers, and we were asked to possibly design matching accessories to our hats. After thinking for a bit I came to the conclusion that a cowl and earwarmer (future post) would be perfect matching items for this set! My beanie will go live on 8/8 with the earwarmer shortly after. Keep an eye out so you can make the whole set! 

 

The Pinecrest Cowl features wonderful triangular stitches that look great in any color combination! Make the upward pointed triangles green to have them look like pine trees! Make it in either child or adult size with the option of a tall or short cowl for either size.

One thought on “Pinecrest Cowl-A Free Pattern

  1. I’m planning on making cowls to donate as I live in a very cold place and there are lots of people in need. They will love these. Cowls for the homeless and for children are especially good because they then don’t have to contend with loose scarfs that can cause tripping, get caught in things, or at the least, loss of the scarf
