Crochet aran cowl, scarf, wrap, Pattern No21, in both UK and US crochet terms

*** Pattern No 21 Aran Cowl ***

Stay cozy this winter with a snug cowl! This tubular cowl has a wonderful aran design but instead of knit, it's crocheted! If you have done any raised crochet stitches before, you will be well able to make this cowl.

I made this cowl using Big Merino by Drops Design, a 100% extra fine Merino wool (a UK aran/US worsted weight yarn/AUS 12-ply) and it's wonderfully soft. I used approximately 210g/7.41oz of this yarn, just under 5 balls of yarn. But you may use any yarn you wish.

The finished cowl measures 21in/53.5cm around and is 10in/25.5cm high. So it's big enough to keep you toasty yet small enough to fit into your handbag.

Please feel free to sell the items you make from this pattern but please do NOT sell, distribute or reproduce this pattern in anyway. I would also appreciate you crediting my little shop when you sell the finished items :-). Thank you for your respect.

My patterns are written in both UK/European and US/American crochet terms in two separate files. The PDF file attached to this listing is written in UK/European terms. The zip file attached to this listing contains both the UK/European file and the US/American file. (If you are unsure which one to use, the UK/European file uses terms like htr=half treble and the US/American file uses terms like sc=single crochet and hdc=half double crochet. Hope this helps!)

Thanks so much for looking!! R♥

I ♥ Crochet!!!

I love all things crafty - knitting, sewing, lacemaking, embroidery, but my true passion is crochet. I was taught to crochet by a wonderful lady and am lucky to now be able to pass that knowledge on to others, in my classes and through my written patterns.

I hope you like my little designs. Happy Crocheting! R♥
