Candy Ribbons Cowl Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home

Candy Ribbons Cowl
Free Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

The Candy Ribbons Cowl features rounds of post stitches and rounds of long V stitches made with triple treble crochet stitches. The pattern is written in 3 lengths, so you can choose the look you like the best! Candy Ribbons was named by Marsha N., a creative member of the Crochet Lounge group on Facebook. She came up with the name because the cowl reminds her of the candy ribbons you sometimes see at Christmas time. Thank you, Marsha!
