Short cowls are very easy to wear and relatively fast to make. They are becoming quite popular on our blog. Delaney is made with a very attractive combination of textured stitch and lacey holes which is at the same time warm and not too heavy, and the stitch is quite easy to make if you know the basic stitches in crochet. Done in a rich color that goes well with any complection, this is definitely a winner for your wardrobe. Great also for a charity project. Enjoy!
