When the leaves change color and fall, you'll find yourself wandering outside to enjoy the beautiful weather of autumn before winter sets in. Autumn is not only gorgeous, but the brisk air can be extremely refreshing and invigorating. However, you'll want to bundle up so you can enjoy it without feeling cold! Crochet cowls are just perfect for fall, and there are plenty of examples in our free eBook, Make a Crochet Cowl: 10 Crochet Cowl Patterns.

Not only do they look gorgeous, with a variety of crochet cowl patterns to choose from, but they also provide warmth so that you can go out in just a light jacket or sweater. Crochet cowls frame your face in beautiful yarn designs and make your ensemble more interesting. Unlike scarves, crochet cowls will stay in place. No need to re-wrap or adjust; they'll stay perfectly snug around your neck. They're great for moms carrying little ones, ladies with active lifestyles, or anyone who loves fashion. Make a statement after you make a crochet cowl for autumn.

great work. just love it. thanks

I made the one skein vineyard cowl. Here is a picture. I loved working with that yarn. It self shades and gently morphs into the next color. It was so easy to make. As soon as I find another color combo that I like, I will be making another one for sure.

I love to make them and to see people wearing them but unfortunately I can't wear one because of the heat. I live in Florida and it hardly ever gets cold enough to consider wearing one of these. But I still make them for friends and family who live in the colder climates.

This is a great collection. I want to make every one of these!

Cowls are my favorite type of project to crochet! They're typically pretty easy and are a great way to add a pop of color to an outfit.

I made multiple scarves last year for charity but not one cowl. I downloaded this ebook so I can learn to make these types of scarves next year.
