After The Flames Cowl Crochet

After The Flames Cowl

This After The Flames Cowl was inspired as I had some leftover yarn from crocheting the After The Flames Shawl and I wanted to make something quick and simple. This cowl is the perfect 1 ball project or yarn scrap project! It uses the same V Stitch as the shawl though it is worked as a rectangle, not a triangle. This crocheted cowl is great for small on-the-go projects and makes the most perfect and unique gift for family and friends. The After The Flames Cowl is extremely versatile as well as you can make it longer in length or in width to suit you. Please find the written pattern and sketched diagram for the V Stitch pattern and the YouTube Tutorial below.
