I know it’s officially spring but it has been so cold here that I decided to whip up a lightweight crochet cowl that I could wear on these chilly spring days.

One of the best parts of this cowl is that you can work it up in just one evening because of the simple stitches used. Plus, it only takes a small amount of yarn, so it’s the perfect stash buster!

Learn more about the yarn I used in this cowl below.

The Yarn

I decided to use Bernat Softee Baby Yarn in Grey Marl since it has an airy and soft texture. It is a 100% acrylic 3 lightweight yarn that is available in an array of beautiful colors. Take a look at a few of my favorite colors below.

And the best part..

I love the fact that the Grey Marl is the perfect yarn color choice for transitioning to spring but truthfully I love them all so you can’t go wrong with any color.
