I am tempted to name this one “The Riverdale”. Or, I could name it “Binge Worthy” because it is so easy to make you can binge your favourite show, or binge make them while you binge watch. I must have watched a whole season while I was working on this crochet cowl. Every night I finished 1-2 inches while Christian and I watched.
This crochet cowl is made entirely of single crochet. I chose an 8mm hook because as we all know – I am a REALLY slow crocheter! I knew that the Caron Cakes Latte Crochet Cowl was going to take me a while but in the end would totally be worth the time. In fact, the hardest part of this cowl was deciding on which colour to use. The yarn was a no brainer – once I felt the soft lushness of the Yarnspirations Caron Latte Cakes there was no need to look any farther.

This cowl is made to fit snuggly. I wanted something that was more than just for fashion but was actually going to keep me warm while walking my dog. A cowl that I could pull up over my face if the wind started to blow and it got really cold.
If you want a cowl that is a little longer just crochet more chains at the beginning and it will make for a longer cowl. I crocheted until the skein was almost completely gone, but saved a little to make a matching headband. Of course you can always crochet until the skein is entirely gone.
In the end, this cowl ended up measuring 14″ x 52″. I am a plus size and it is snug on me, so if you are on the small size you may want to chain a few less at the beginning.
Alas…. we begin!
