It is super easy to make also!

One more thing, if you would like this cowl to have a closure, you could go here to find several to choose from. You can use a contrasting color for your frog or one of the two tones of the cowl. Here is a specific example, though this blog is full of other frogs that you might try:

Abrianna

Best Blog Tips

Since you have loved my cowls so much, I still feel inspired to design new ones. Abrianna is a very simple cowl to make, even an advanced beginner can make it. It works up quickly (can easily be finished in one sitting) and takes less than a full skein of yarn. The crocheted fabric is light and somewhat lacy, for those in-between days that are not tremendously cold and windy, yet because it is yarn, it provides warmth. Crochet it for yourself, for a friend, or for a charity project. It will make anyone feel pretty and feminine. Enjoy!
