Day 11 and almost there…

On the eleventh day of Christmas eleven piping pipers might have driven me to drink. This super simple crochet cowl would definitely have kept me on the wagon.

We like to mix and match textures as well as colours, and this is a great way to do it in a quick and easy cowl. If you’re scratching for a last minute Christmas gift you could even rustle one up between now and Christmas morning.

Finished product: ~50cm long (the loop) x ~16cm wide

Chain 110 to make a base chain and join to form a circle, taking care not to twist your chain
