Today I would like to share an easy crochet pattern with you for a lace cowl that is excellent to wear in sunny weather. Summer is just around the corner so it’s time to enjoy some lightweight projects! Sunny Lace Cowl is a stylish and casual accessory suitable to any occassion. I adored making this crochet cowl and I am more than delighted with the end result.
I bought this Malabrigo Lace Yarn in this fabulous ochre color and actually I am obsessed with this color. I used less than one skein of yarn (40g) with a 2,5mm crochet hook. This yarn is very delicate and that’s why the cowl is light and airy. This was my first time using this yarn and I think it goes really nicely with the lacy pattern . For such a simple pattern, it gives lovely effect on any spring or summer day.
Although this is listed as laceweight, feel free to substitute any fingering weight yarn you want.
Sunny Lace Cowl is a great beginner lace project that is simple to memorize and quick to finish. I have given instruction in Notes below to change the width\length depending on the amount of yarn you have or your personal preferences. A long size cowl create an airy infinity scarf and a smaller one would be a great last-minute gift. It’s worked flat, blocked and then grafted together to create a loop.
