Finally, a matching Star Sand Cowl!

So many of you awesome crocheters have been asking me to  make a matching scarf or cowl to go with my Star Sand Hat Crochet Pattern. I’m blown away by all the wonderful comments you all have left!

This gorgeous crochet cowl pattern provides a perfect accompaniment to that hat. However, as usual, I’ve used some pretty yarn from my stash for both of them, so the gauge isn’t a perfect match. Not to worry, the pattern can be sized to fit your preferred dimensions fairly easily from the very first round, so as long as you have a bit of extra yarn on hand, you can use whichever yarn you please to make this pretty neck scarf.

Add this pattern to your Ravelry favorites here!  Be sure to pin it on Pinterest for gift season!

Make sure you have plenty of yarn, then simply work the foundation chain (or row, if you choose to use foundation hdc) to the desired length. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.
