Boxy Bulky Cowl Crochet Pattern

The Boxy Bulky Cowl Crochet Pattern uses a thicker yarn, 6 ply bulky yarn to create a nice thick, heavy cowl to keep you warm during those chilly times of year.  It uses a stitch I designed just for this cowl, the triple crochet box stitch.  The stitch I designed creates a nice long stitch to create a beautiful texture.

Below you will find a free version of the Boxy Bulky Cowl Crochet Pattern.
