Emerald Isle Here I Come! This free crochet convertible cowl uses fun stitches and a gorgeous colorway to create a vacation type feel, even if only in your mind.
I actually live right outside of Emerald Isle, so when I saw this colorway of Evermore yarn by Red Heart I just knew I had to have it. The beautiful skeins of yarn sat there for a little bit while I decided what to make with them; then the idea came to me and I was off. The openness of the stitch design really lends itself to the changes of this gorgeous yarn. Evermore is also available in eight other colorways.
This free crochet convertible cowl can be work in a variety of different ways and would look great with any outfit. It features a fun lacy design with a simple 4-row repeat. This pattern is available in 8 sizes. Enjoy!
