Cowls and Scarves for Every Style

The holiday count down is on! These last minute knit and crochet cowl and scarf projects can be finished up fast and make very thoughtful gifts. And if you're already finished with your gift knitting take a moment to be inspired!

Whether you are just learning or if you've been crocheting for years you'll love these 4 new quick and easy designs by Knotsewcute. Although the Boyfriend Cowl is super easy to make the unique construction really adds to its shape and you'll be delighted with the results. Also, if you don’t want to share…then don’t tell your guy that it will look equally as good on him.

Boyfriend Cowl

The long and luxurious Double Twist Cowl is a cowl and a scarf. Its made up of two individual scarves of contracting colors and then linked together and the pattern calls for only these basic stitches: ch, sc, and dc. You can wear it long or wrap it around your neck a few times for a variety of looks.

The Never Ending Scarf is super easy to crochet yet it has the feel and drape of a fine knit fabric! You can wear this versatile scarf as a cowl or for added warmth you can wear it as a hood. The pattern is a simple one row repeat so this is the perfect project to work on while watching T.V. or visiting with friends.

And every time you wear Knotsewcute's Honey Bee Scarf your friends will never guess that its crochet! This delicate looking scarf is a beautiful combination of the honeycomb stitch framed on either side by cables…giving it that classic knit look. And best yet, its reversible so it looks great on both sides.
