Welcome back to the 2018 Scarf of the Month Club!
I am so excited to share my last pattern of this year’s Scarf of the Month Club! My contribution this month is a gorgeous cowl which I made with Lion Brand Homespun yarn that I received in my Lion Brand Secret Santa Bag. Scroll down to check out the FREE crochet pattern for my Sugar Plum Cowl. I hope you enjoy it! Happy Crocheting!
Join us for the December 2018 scarf patterns!
Back by popular demand, Rhondda and I are hosting the Scarf of the Month Club CAL in 2018. We will each have a new free scarf/cowl/neckwarmer pattern on our blogs each month, for 12 months! Plus, we will have 12 amazing designers that will be joining us and will each be contributing a new free crochet scarf pattern as well!

If you would like to share your progress, please feel free to add your Ravelry Project Pages for each of the scarves you make! Each pattern post will include a specific pattern link to Ravelry so you can add your own project. Rhondda has put together a great tutorial on how to add projects to Ravelry, which you can find here.
