Kiss Me At Midnight Quick Cowl – Free Pattern

As you have probably noticed, I’ve been really into cowls and scarves lately. I’ve also been on a chunky yarn kick too. Prime examples, my Romance in Twilight Mobius Scarf and Enchanted Evening Button Cowl. Today, I have this beautiful and simple Kiss Me At Midnight Quick Cowl. It works up in about 2 hours and uses one skein of yarn! It’s a great gift idea and a wonderful pattern to use up some of that variegated yarn that you don’t know what to do with. I’m using Red Heart Boutique Midnight but any category 4, medium weight yarn will do. I hope you enjoy the pattern and Happy crocheting!

  1. I love the cowl, but I really love the name!! What a clever way to incorporate the yarn name in the pattern name. I make crafts to help pay the veterinary expenses for rescued dogs, and I’ll bet I could get a lot of ladies to buy a cowl with this name! Thank you for another beautiful pattern!
