I was asked to make a few family members a cowl this past Christmas and I really enjoyed creating this one! I’m normally am not a fan of slip stitch designs but I love the texture it creates. Though with a large hook and cozy yarn, this is a great stitch to use. I hope you enjoy this slip stitch free cowl crochet pattern as much as I enjoyed creating it.
