Valley Yarns 414 Valley Cowl
This luscious, lacy cowl is crocheted infinity or Moebius style, beginning with a center strip and worked seamlessly in continuous figure 8s. Worn as a shoulder wrap or double-twisted around the head as a hood, the Valley Cowl is a lovely, practical, and quick-to-crochet gift.
The sample is crocheted in Valley Yarns Deerfield, a soft, lustrous DK blend of alpaca and silk. This construction also works wonderfully with many of your favorite Valley Yarns, including hand-dyed yarns. For suggestions and adjustments needed for substituting yarns, see the tips included in this pattern.
