Are you ready to learn how to make this double layer crochet cowl? If so, continue reading all about it.
Is it weird to say for every pattern I design that I just love how it turned out? With this one, normally I am not one to like stripes but the yarn totally made this crochet cowl so amazing.
This is a free crochet pattern for a double layer cowl. The double layer means that it is worked as a long tube shape in the round and then each end brought together and sewn.
This creates a nice double layer fabric for the cowl which is a great feature for this crochet neck warmer if its very chilly or windy.
This striped crochet cowl is fairly simple and easy to make. It is a 2-round repeat that alternates between 2 colors every other round.
About the double layer crochet cowl

Some stitches and techniques used in this cowl pattern include – double crochet, working in the round, working in the back loop only, changing colors, following instructions for a special stitch.
