I made this cute cowl neck warmer last night - it was easy, fun, and really cute! It's hard to envision how adorable it is when it's sitting on my kitchen counter, but trust me it's cute.

One Row Lace Cowl
Instructions are given to make this cowl using
3 different weights of yarn, (heavy lace/sock
weight, DK, and aran/worsted).
The finished cowl will have a diameter of
approximately 20-21”. Your cowl can be
made wider or narrower by adding or
subtracting multiples of 10 stitches.
Heavy lace/ sock weight: 1 pattern repeat (10 st) = 2 inches (3.5 – 4mm hook*)
DK weight: 1 pattern repeat (10 st)= 3 inches (4.5 – 5mm hook*)
Aran/ Worsted: 1 pattern repeat (10 st) = 3.5 inches (5.5 -6mm hook*)
*Or hook size needed to give required gauge
DC = Double Crochet (US terminology) = Treble crochet (UK terminology)
Ch = Chain
St = stitch
Loosely Chain 100 for sock weight, 70 for DK weight, or 60 for aran/ worsted weight yarn.
Join to form a circle taking care not to twist chain.
