Soft, feminine, delicate, cozy, warm, and pretty – the Lavender Kisses Cowl is all these things, as well as a free crochet pattern on Moogly!

Made with Red Heart Unforgettable, the Lavender Kisses Cowl feels great against the skin, looks wonderful, and is 100% allergy free acrylic. And it comes in tons of colorways, so you can go bright and bold or soft and gentle, as I have with the Pearly colorway shown here.
What’s unusual about this cowl is the sizing – only 24″ around, it’s closer fitting, like a big neckwarmer. But it’s also 18″ tall, so it puddles around the neck beautifully. This one skein crochet cowl pattern features an easy two-row repeat featuring crossed stitches – the pretty kisses are built right in!
