Nectar Cowl to crochet

Nectar is an quick to crochet lacy cowl. Wear it over a plain top to dress it up, around your neck for some extra warmth, or pair with a coat to keep out chilly breezes.

You can make this with one 200 yard skein of sock yarn and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook. It is crocheted from the bottom up in a continuous spiral. My blocked cowl measured 30" around x 9" tall. I used Sensation Truly in truly purple for this sample. The pattern contains both written instructions and a crochet chart.

I blocked my cowl to open up the lace. You don't have to but your cowl will be smaller in size.

I've included instructions for making the cowl longer or wider.

Use up some of those single skeins of yarn in your stash to make this cowl. Choose a smooth textured yarn in any weight and choose a crochet hook larger than the  yarn label recommends. Yarn requirements will change if you use a different weight of yarn.

The 2 page pattern can be found in my Ravelry pattern store. All money from this pattern sales will be donated to the Mercy Corp.
