It seems that summer is still in full effect… long sweltering days and thunderstorms. Of course, that means that I am thinking about nothing more than fall! I can’t be the only longing for the shorter days, crisp air, red noses, fall colors and cozy crochet cowls. 
Crochet cowl patterns  are the perfect for the fall season, and are always a stylish and trendy accessory. I love making them because they are almost mindless once you have the pattern memorized, which means I can work on them while watching a movie with the kids or while holding a conversation at my weekly sit-‘n’-crochet meeting at the bookstore.
This collection of free crochet cowl patterns are the newest patterns on AllFreeCrochet  and will make great fall wardrobe piece. Each of these patterns are easy to make in any color combination, so you can easily coordinate your fall outfits. Don’t forget that these crochet cowls are the newest free crochet patterns for beginners , but the experienced hooker will love them too.
This time of year, I am also thinking about all the Christmas gift-giving and my growing lists. Crochet cowls make perfect gifts for anyone on your list because they work up so quickly. If you make one with a chunkier yarn, they work up even faster, too! You can adjust the length of the cowl, and therefore easily adjust them for giving to young girls and teens, as well.
