Crochet Pattern: Carolina Cowls

The Carolina Cowls are a trio of versatile crocheted cowl patterns inspired by the Triangle region of North Carolina. Raleigh features upright stitches that reflect the traditional vibe of the state capitol. Durham’s pattern repeat highlights the wave that marks that city’s transition from mill town to funky town, while the stitch pattern in Chapel Hill suggests the argyle synonymous with this buttoned-down college town.

Use fingering weight yarn for the detailed stitch patterning in this project. To make all three cowls, you’ll need approximately 200 yards [183 meters] of one color and about 160 yards [146 meters] each of two other colors.

For the samples shown, I used KnitPicks Palette (100% Peruvian Highland wool, 1.75 oz [50 g], 231 yd [211 m]), 1 ball each Coriander Heather (A), Autumn Heather (B), and Opal Heather (C)
