Easy Knit-Look Cowl

Knit-Look Cowl - Crochet Pattern - TheRovingNomad.com.png

No fear crocheters, the Knit-Look Cowl only looks like it’s been knitted. This beginner friendly pattern uses a simple slip stitch create beautiful texture.

I made this cowl with 2 different yarns as an example for sizing. The teal color is from my local Joanns store. Wool and the Gang makes a soft yarn aptly named “Cuddle Me Softly” and it is so stinking’ soft!


The other yarn that I used is Wool and the Gang Crazy Sexy Wool. Just look at that jumbo texture!

Both of these were made with a size Q crochet hook, but have different sizing due to the weight of the yarn.
