The Mint Color Block Crochet Cowl Pattern is a super quick and easy project to finish over a weekend! This colorful fitted cowl will keep you stylish AND warm!
Hey there, thank you for stopping by my blog! Today I am sharing a fun new pattern – the Mint Color Block Crochet Cowl. I hope you are enjoying your winter so far and staying warm! To help you stay warm throughout the rest of the season I thought it would be fun to make another crochet cowl!
In case you missed it, I posted the Textured Woodland Cowl last week in a really pretty amethyst color. I don’t typically wear a lot of color – mostly greys and blacks. So in an attempt to step out of my comfort zone I have been trying incorporate more colors into my patterns – hence the pop of mint in this cowl!
In addition to a pop of color, this pattern features a really pretty texture of combining single crochets and double crochets. I used this same stitch technique in my Crochet Textured Dishcloth Pattern. To see a tutorial of this stitch in action check out my video below for a visual of the stitch:
