Adna Cowl Free Crochet Pattern

The Adna Cowl is a free crochet pattern. This cowl starts off like a circular shawl and then is worked in the round to make it a cowl. I really like that these cowls take surprisingly little yarn but they looks very full. All the fabric is in the front which also makes them more comfortable to wear. It gives you the look of a shawl without having to deal with the ends.
