What Yarn Should You Use for this Crochet Cowl Pattern?

For this textured crochet cowl pattern, I used the Knit Picks – Paragon Sport yarn by WeCrochet. This is a sport (#2) weight yarn, it is 50% Fine Merino Wool, 25% Baby Alpaca, 25% Mulberry Silk and is extremely soft and nice on your skin!
I would recommend using a natural fiber yarn for the best stitch definition in this cowl design.

About the Design

The cowl is worked lengthwise as a regular scarf and is closed with buttons. That means you can work this cowl into a scarf, or an infinity scarf and make it as long as you’d like.
The unique texture is created using the Arrow Lace crochet stitch, which is combines with 2 chains of 5 stitches.
The pattern in this post is a written pattern only, you can also get a detailed chart, photo-tutorial and video tutorial on the premium PDF version of the Follow Your Path Crochet Cowl pattern.
