Aliya and Ann Cowl or Scarf
This is a free crochet pattern for a cowl, infinity scarf or a scarf. The pattern is designed in two different widths and can be finished as a cowl (infinity scarf) or a regular scarf.
It only uses one skein of Miss Babs Yowza – Whatta Skein! This cowl/scarf is worked flat until desired or specified length is reached, or until you run out of yarn. Then, for a cowl, edges are slip stitched together. Flower motif is then completed and attached to the cowl.
