Are you more of a cowl person, or scarf person? I have realized in recent years that I am definitely a cowl (or infinity!) person; I like to simply throw it on and run out the door. With a cowl, I don’t worry about tripping over the ends or getting stuck in elevator doors (I am hugely clumsy, and these types of scenarios are very real possibilities!).

So today, I am adding another cowl to my plaid design library.
The idea for this two toned chunky crochet triangle cowl has been on my design list for years. I attempted to design it last year, however, due to baby-induced sleep deprivation I was a few crayons short of full box, so in the WIP bin it went.

This year with renewed determination and a less addled brain, I achieved the shaping in a much easier way than my original idea.

BONUS: This cowl is great for advanced beginners who are comfortable with the plaid color work because the construction is quite simple.

But maybe if you are a scarf person, I hope maybe you give this cowl a try. I might even make myself another one and switch out the plaid for stripes 🤔.
