Making a Cowl

This is a very simple project on how to make a cowl in crochet.

If you have done crochet before go ahead and watch the video below.  It shows you step by step on how to make this cowl.

Stitches used are chains and double crochet. You will be working in long rows, completing about 16 to 17 rows. End sides are joined to make a big loop. The yarn used is Simply Soft, by Caron. This is a worsted weight yarn size 4, very soft yarn and somewhat shiny. The cowl will be very soft and malleable. One skein of yarn of 6 oz is enough for one cowl.
