Diamond Trellis Cowl – Free Crochet Pattern

I love different textures and sometimes when you combine them with different types of yarn you get something fun and/or unique. For the Diamond Trellis cowl pattern I used a combination of crochet stitches that gave it plenty of texture, combined with cake yarn. Don’t you just love the result?
