If you have been with me for any length of time here on my little crochet blog, then you may have picked up on the fact that I LOVE: one skein projects, Caron Cakes yarn, texture, and fast, functional and stylish pieces. Sound familiar? Yep! I talk about it all the time. And today's free crochet pattern hits ALL of these marks. Keep reading for the free Sprinkles Cowl crochet pattern :)
So it is no secret that I love Caron Cakes yarn! I have "been on the bandwagon" so to speak since they were first release last year, so I was super excited when they expanded the line a few weeks ago. What was I most excited for? The Sprinkle Cakes of course! I love love love the bulky texture, cozy neutral colors and the bright pops of "sprinkles" color.
This cowl uses one of my favorite simple stitches that produces amazing texture - the baby bean stitch. If you need help with it, check out the video below ;) It can, of course, be made with any super bulky yarn of your choice and you should be able to finish it in just a few hours! This cowl will make a perfect, quick gift for the holiday season or a last minute cozy accessory for yourself.
