Diamonds & Gems Cowl Crochet Pattern

Last week I shared the crochet pattern for the Diamonds & Gems Fingerless Gloves and Boot Cuffs and today I’d like to share the coordinating Cowl (I’m also working on a hat that I hope to release in a few days). The more I adapt this stitch pattern for different items, the more I fall in love with it. I adore how the coordinating colors blend into the main color and look like little gems peaking out. 

The cowl is designed in worsted weight yarn and works up very quickly. I used three colors but you can use as many as you like and help use up some of that stash we all have πŸ˜‰  It can be worn several different ways and is a wonderful fashion accessory and they make great holiday gifts too!
