How to crochet the Sunrise Cowl
This is a really great scarf for wearing in the depths of winter. Even though the wool is thick and chunky it’s extra soft, so it feels comfortable and warm around the neck. It also crochets up really quickly using half trebles and can be made over a couple of evenings. I have put this at level 2 – the stitch is really simple and great for a beginner, but the wool is a little fluffy and it takes time to find the stitches.
