Mountain Majesty Cowl – Free Crochet Pattern

I was on a mission to create a new pattern with this gorgeous wooden hook I received from Laurel Hill Hooks. Honestly, picking the yarn was harder than picking the hook. But that’s when I remembered my good friend Rachel keeps telling me to make something in dark purple – she insisted it would be good for my eyes and haircolor.

I finally listened. With some gorgeous dark purple Charisma yarn and this amazing hook from Laurel Hill, I set out to create a new cowl…. because cowls are my favorite accessory.
