Easy Sea Glass Chunky Crochet Cowl
As much as the calendar is showing me that Spring’s on the way, it’s still pretty freakin’ cold out. I have to put my winter accessories on and bundle up every time I leave the house. Thank goodness I have this beautiful chunky crochet cowl to keep me warm and cozy.
This crochet project was actually inspired by the Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn – I saw it and fell in love with the colors. I didn’t have anything specific in mind but knew I wanted something soft and squishy around my neck.
This sea glass chunky crochet cowl is easy to work up – you can complete it in a few hours at most.
If you’re learning how to crochet it’s a great beginner project. The chunky yarn and simple crochet pattern will provide you with almost instant satisfaction.
This crochet neck warmer uses only two basic crochet stitches, the half double crochet stitch, and the puff stitch.
