Fall is here in the northern hemisphere, and temperatures are cooler in the morning and late evening. If you enjoy the drop in temperature, but not ready for a coat, check out the Chunky Cowl and Collar crochet pattern! It’s a quick crochet project with chunky yarn and a large hook. You can make one in an evening to wear on the next chilly morning. It looks great as a collar with a long sleeve top, or pair it with your favorite wool coat this winter. Who has time to button that weirdly placed top button to keep the cold out??? The Chunky Cowl and Collar will keep you warm and stylish.
