Brisa Crochet Cowl

Today's post will be a quick and easy crochet cowl! I made this during the spring and I think that you can get away with it on a cool summer night! 

I live in the mountains of east USA and it has worked out pretty nicely for me! Since the yarn I used is 100% cotton it doesn't keep me too hot and it's just warm/ cool enough for a breezy day!

I think the pattern it is pretty straightforward and had an Instagram friend test this for me without a problem! Many thanks to happyhookinyarn - I greatly appreciate your time!

If you run through any issues, feel free to message me and I would be happy to help! If you are unfamiliar with any of the abbreviations below, there are many tutorials on YouTube that can assist with teaching you how to make them.

Hope you enjoy this pattern! There are two more styles for this pattern coming soon! Stayed tuned and updated with all my new patterns by following me on Facebook, Instagram, and Ravelry!

If you would like a PDF copy of this pattern you can purchase it on Etsy for $1.50!

Happy hooking! Naomi ;)
