Crochet cowls are my favorite thing to make. They’re so cozy, squishable, and stylish that I can’t get enough of them!

If you love crochet as much as I do, you’ll love the Design Create Repeat Blog Hop! This cowl is featured for Oct 1, and you can click here to see the rest of the patterns in the blog hop. Happy crocheting!

But here in Florida, it’s too warm to wear some of the adorable marshmallow-fluffy scarves and cowls I’ve seen around the web, so I decided to make a really light version.

The V stitch has been one of my favorite textures since I was just learning to crochet! In fact, the very first blanket I ever made for my son Max was a simple v-stitch blanket with a fancy border. He still uses it today!

I think you’ll love it, too, so here’s what you’ll need to try out the V Stitch in this adorable free crochet cowl pattern.
