Swanky Days Cowl Crochet Pattern

I had some time off this week and was determined to crochet for myself. I wanted something that would be quick to finish, elegant and practical. I had two skeins of Red Heart Swanky yarn in my stash and decided to give these a try. At first I thought I’d make a shawl (because you can never have enough of them right?) but I only had one skein of each color and I wasn’t feeling a two tone shawl in this yarn, so instead, I decided to make a scarf and triangle cowl. 

Both pieces are worked in treble crochet and chains with a larger hook for an open airy feel and they work up lickety split! I love that these are one skein projects too. The yarn was fun to work with and has a nice drape and just a little bit of sparkle with little mirrored specks throughout.

The triangle cowl can be worn a few different ways for a variety of looks which is always an added bonus! If you like this cowl, check out the Swanky Days Scarf too!

Swanky Days CowlI love how it looks over a black dress (but then I always love black) and I think it looks great with a dressy top too, hmm, I think I know what I’m wearing to work tomorrow.
