The Tuscan Sun crochet cowl is soft and textured and perfect for colder weather!
I designed the Tuscan Sun Tunic in 2018 and I just love the texture of it! I knew I wanted to continue to design with it. So I cam up with this crochet cowl pattern!
The stitch combo features a mix of double crochet, single crochet, and puff stitches to create a gorgeous texture. I decided to make this cowl in two colors, but I think it would also look great in a solid color as well!
This crochet cowl pattern calls for DK (#3) weight yarn. I used WeCrochet Swish DK for my cowl.
Swish DK is an amazingly soft 100% superwash merino wool yarn. It comes in a beautiful variety of colors, including some heathers, which I particularly love.
It is machine washable on the gentle cycle and can be tumble dried on low, but I recommend laying flat to dry. You can read more about this in my post on Caring for Your Crochet Garments.
The Tuscan Sun crochet cowl pattern is worked in the round, turning each round. This provides the texture you see in the cowl and keeps the seam straight.
The crochet cowl measures 27″ in circumference and 15″ in length. It is easily customizable and the pattern gives the stitch multiple so you can adjust.
This pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty.
