Spring is finally around the corner! And to celebrate I bring you: The Spring Mandala Cowl Free Crochet Pattern
Here in Alaska, that means LOTS and LOTS of melting snow and ice.
Which still brings some cool weather, especially when the spring winds start to blow. And although artic gear is no longer necessary, we still need some things to stay warm and cozy.
The Spring Mandala Cowl Free Crochet Pattern is free crochet pattern to make a mid-season cowl made to wear during springtime. (JUST AS THE NAME SUGGESTS, lol)
I know that Alaska is extreme when it comes to weather, yet other places also experience cool weather and will benefit from this mid-season cowl. North Caroline comes to mind; I remember that around Easter time it was nice and sunny, yet a cardigan and cowl were needed for me to feel comfortable in that sunny, yet cool weather. (Especially under shade)
To find the FREE version of this crochet pattern, all you have to do is keep scrolling. You will find all the info and the pattern.
But if you prefer to print your pattern, you can find the PDF version in my Ravelry store here: Spring Mandala Cowl PDF
The PDF version of this pattern also includes a full chart, from beginning round to final round. While the free version only offers the written instructions.
This pattern uses an entire cake of the Mandala Yarn by Lionbrand yarns. The fringe is included in the yarn used, and no extra yarn should be needed. Of course, if you decide to make it bigger, or maybe if you wish to opt out from adding the fringe, then the final amount of yarn used will differ.
As a result, you have the possibility to use one cake of yarn entirely without waste!. I just love one cake [one skein] projects, don’t you?
