Tender Delilah Crochet Cowl Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
A cotton cowl makes a great splash-of-color accessory for year round accessorizing. I chose a bright yellow to wear with a long sleeved denim shirt and long flowy maxi skirt or white jeans.
This is a simple stitch pattern repeat with chain, single crochet and double crochet stitches in a pattern that offsets every 5 rows for a 10 row repeat. The stitch repeat is 8 plus 3, meaning you increase by a factor of 8 to increase the width, and then add 3. For example, this cowl is 5 repeats of the pattern: 8 x 5 = 40 + 3 = 43
