12 days of DIY crochet gifts to make: Day 8- small chunky cowl

See also

Day 8 of the 12 days of DIY gifts to make presents a small chunky cowl that gives you the warmth you crave without being overly large. The great thing about this small cowl is that it is a super quick last minute gift to give.

Using a P hook and a super chunky yarn, you should be able to whip up a few in no time to give away as gifts, with time to create your own.

The cowl project time is about 30 minutes to an hour.

Please do not post this pattern on your website or take it as your own. I ask that you instead link to my page, which will help with internet karma. Please note you can use this pattern for personal use and sell what you make. I only ask that you credit me as the pattern creator and link to this article. Thank you.
