How to make a cowl from squares

If you’re after another simple granny square project, then why not try a cowl?!

A cowl is perfect for layering in the transitioning seasons, or for adding a touch of warmth in an office without it getting in the way. And even better is that you don’t need a lot of yarn for it, or a lot of time! And if you can make a square then your options for cowl design just became endless…

I made this one from a triangle pattern from my Hooked on Crochet Club projects and one skein of yarn.

I joined the traingles as I went and should have used an even number, but I didn’t have enough yarn for 6 triangles and didn’t think it would fit over my head with 4. So I winged it and left it at 5. I also ended up doing a round of slip stitch across the top and bottom to finish it off as I didn’t have enough yarn to get a nice edge with single crochet. But that’s the fun of design and crochet! There is always a way to fudge a project to make it work out in the end.

Inside the Hooked on Crochet Club one use for our squares is to help with becoming a designer. So with your designer hat on, what square and yarn could you see yourself using to make a cowl? Let us know in the comments below!
