Mills Cowl Free Crochet Pattern by KT and the Squid

I’m so pleased to start the new year off with a brand new, FREE crochet cowl pattern! Last month the Stitch Together Official team and I did a Secret Santa. It was so cool to get all 7 of us organized enough to open our gifts together via the magic of video chat even though we all live thousands of miles away. Part of my gift (from the sweet Lee Sartori of Coco Crochet Lee) was a wonderfully lofty skein of yarn from M1Yarns. I was so inspired I whipped up the Mills Cowl right away so I thought I’d share this quick and simple pattern with you!
