Spring Colors Cowl Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

I was looking through my Yarn Stash
 and saw these 4 colors of yarn
 laying next to each other in a basket.
Lavender, Pink, Medium Blue and White, 
and wished I had a scarf, cowl or shawl 
to wear in those colors for Spring.
I usually go for Bright colors, 
but really loved the way these 
4 colors looked together.

I designed a Lacy open worked Cowl,
that is perfect for Spring.
 It can be worn several ways.
Draped,     Long or
Off The Shoulders.
And I added a Big Loopy Flower.

Spring Colors Cowl 
including the Big Loopy Flower
Crochet pattern is now available in an
