Crochet Pattern: Century Cowl

Crochet Pattern: Century Cowl


Designed by Jeananne Atthowe

The Agave Americana, or as it is commonly known: the century plant, captured my attention in the southwest gardens of New Mexico. With a wide, leafy base and a tall blooming stalk, the plant stands out among its shorter cohabitants – a statement piece of the desert. Drawing from these attributes, the Century Cowl was designed as a cozy, comfortable, and eye-catching accessory.

Sizes Included in Pattern: One Size Fits Most Adults
