This crochet cowl pattern works up incredibly fast and can get you a big bang for your buck. The Zara Cowl was inspired by the Zola Bulky Stacked Shell Cowl and Shrug and modified by my good friend Cyndee of Lovin Each Stitch. Cyndee kindly allowed me to share these modifications with my followers. I hope you enjoy this free crochet cowl pattern.
