Spending way too much time at hobby lobby has become a problem for me. I can’t resist checking in every other week to see what new yarns they have stocked up. That 30 % off all yarn sale is not easy to resist and my yarn cabinet is getting pretty out of hand. A while back, I picked up this yarn bee sweet divinity because I love this Lavender color. Get the sweet divinity here. I only had 1 ball so I decided to make this light spring time cowl. I know, it’s not springtime yet, not even close. But I wanted to use this yarn and the weather rules don’t apply to us Floridians. It’s our tradeoff for never being able to make a snowman.
I’m loving the softness of this yarn and it is super easy to work with. The quality is what you would expect with Hobby Lobby yarns, I have never come across one I didn’t love. Buy your yarn for this project right here at Hobby Lobby.
A beginner should have no problem making this project. The pattern consists of mostly single crochet and chain stitches. It also features an extended single crochet, which is a useful stitch to learn if you don’t already know it. Extended stitches are just going to add a little extra height to your work and they make for a really pretty finished crochet piece. This yarn is not going to crochet itself, let’s get making!

Leave a long tail for seaming. Fasten off.
Your work should end at a repeat of row 22, this will make seaming very simple.
Seam both ends together using the mattress stitch.
Attach a new strand of yarn to begin the border.
Working in the round, work sc sts evenly spaced around the edge of your cowl. Join to beg sc with a sl st.
Fasten off. Repeat on other side.
