I had this new yarn Nako Peru Color that I wanted to test. I had an idea for a shawl, but I had to frog it a few times and in the end decided that some ideas just don’t work. Or at least don’t work with this specific yarn. I had to put it into some good use. And that’s how the pattern for Marbled Crochet Cowl came to life. Those cowls are so easy to make, and will keep you warm through autumn and winter. This is a great project for beginners andwill make a quick Christmas gift.
The yarn I used is Nako Peru Color and 1 cake was enough for 2 cowls. You can use any other yarn, just be aware that this will make your cowl bigger or smaller. It is a very soft and squishy yarn, 50% acrylic, 25 % wool, 25% alpaca. But have in mind, that this yarn is very hard to unravel, so choose your projects wisely if you want to try it :))
And now – to the pattern.
