I am so excited to share this festive crochet cowl with you! I specifically made this a Christmas themed cowl but it can easily be a themed cowl for many other events.
I typically do not like working with more than 2 colors in a project but I made an exception for this one.
I love that these Christmas colors are a little more modern due to the fact that they are a tweed yarn. So let me tell you about this lovely yarn!
The yarn was provided to me from We Crochet for this project. This yarn is Wool of The Andes Tweed. It has over 25 amazing colors to choose from. Which means the color combinations are endless if you wanted to try different colors for this crochet cowl.
The 3 specific colors used for this cowl are – Forest Heather, Gingham Heather and Down Heather. This yarn is 80% Peruvian Highland Wool, 20% Donegal Tweed.
This festive crochet cowl uses a variation of a crochet wave stitch. One will need to know how to work in the round and work in the back loop only.
Stitches used include chains, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and treble crochet stitches.
