Crochet a Celtic weave cowl with this free crochet pattern and video tutorial. The Celtic Winters Cowl can be made with just one skein of Lion Brand Scarfie yarn. Keep reading for the free crochet pattern.
The Celtic weave stitch is so beautiful I can hardly stand it, and once you get started its actually a pretty simple repeat! And my favorite part about it with this project is that it really shows off my favorite qualities of the Scarfie yarn. The gradient of colors shows off the texture of the stitches, and the stitches themselves are as light and fluffy as clouds!
