This Madison series is my new favorite. I love the simple, yet textured design!
Sometimes a simple crochet project can have a big impact. The Madison Cowl uses a simple double crochet stitch with ribbing on one end to make a cowl that’s quick to stitch and easy to wear.
Make it in a solid color as shown in the pattern, or use up some oddballs to make a colorful stash-busting project.
This crochet cowl pattern is so easy you can make one in every color to go with all your cold weather outfits. It's also super quick to work up. If you enjoy crocheting projects that are quick and easy, check out 90 amazing “Done in a Day” crochet patterns.
