Winter is coming (yes I watch Game of Thrones)! That means it’s time to hunker down with hot cocoa, movies, and plenty of cozy crochet blankets. And I, for one, couldn’t be more excited!
Cold weather months help us slow down naturally, not only because of the holidays but also because it’s too chilly to even want to do much.
Still, life goes on and as much as we might like to huddle beneath our duvets and hibernate, sometimes we do have to venture out.
And it’s on those days that you’ll want to break out this big button puffy crochet cowl.
Keep yourself cozy with this super warm cowl. Wear it alone or pair it with your favorite winter coat for those extra chilly mornings. It’s an easy crochet pattern to make and the thick yarn makes this work up very quickly.
Plus, this crochet cowl has buttons so you don’t have to worry about it slipping off.
With one of these in your arsenal, chilly mornings will be no match for you.
Like many of these styles of patterns, this cowl is actually made from a rectangle.
