Red Heart Stellar Sparkling Shells Cowl

Add a phenomenally soft, gorgeously textured scarf-like accessory to your wardrobe with the Red Heart Stellar Sparkling Shells Cowl! The shades in this bulky yarn seem to melt into each other, making you look cool as you stay warm. The easy shell stitch crochet pattern is easy to work with too!

Use a gauge of 2 shells (4") 5 rows (5") to crochet a cowl that measures 6" wide x 68" in circumference. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook.
