Granny Square Cowl {Quick + Cozy}

My love of the granny square is still growing. Today, I am sharing my newest creation from the granny-- the colorful cowl.

Even though we are having a mild winter in the Midwest, this California-raised-girl is chilled when the temps drop in the 60s. Soooo, the cooler weather lends itself to heavy blankets, warm mugs filled with hot, creamy tea and crochet. As I was bundled up, I considered my love of the granny and decided I was ready to wear some. I pulled out some colors that made me happy, and began to hook away.

I used five colors in grays + pinks for these granny squares. Once I completed five squares, I connected them with single crochet stitches in one of the gray colors. Next, for uniformity, I used the same gray to single stitch an edging around the top and bottom of the cowl. Such a fun and fast way to add a pop of color to these cold + gloomy winter days!
