Crochet Half-Double Cowl Pattern

I Return!

Hello my fellow crafters! It has been a busy couple of weeks around here. I am super late with christmas projects I wanted to get done, but at least I’ve been stitching away to get them done. Even my already-busy husband Craig has offered his help in seaming together granny squares, learning how to crochet a little in the process. Bless him.

As always, I’m late with the specific patterns I want to share with you all. But better late than never, right? It took a bit of fighting with my achy hands to get this to work correctly, but I present to you: the Crochet Half-Double Cowl Pattern!

So let’s just get started, shall we?

Tah Dah!

And you’re done! You should have around 7-8 inches worth of rounds. For me this goes from my shoulders to the middle of my ears. But if you’d like to make it cover further up, just keep adding rounds in the same sequence (R2 and R3).
