I am on a cowl design kick lately, so let me introduce you to the Ava Cowl. This cowl is super simple to make and beginner friendly. I used Lion Brand’s new Flikka yarn and it gives a little extra pop of color without having to do a bunch of color changes. It was so hard to pick my favorite Flikka yarn color but the Grape Jelly really spoke to me and the texture that I used look amazing with the first try. Most of the time when designing a crochet pattern, you have to play around with a few textures to see which one you like more but this one just flew off the hook!

Both of my older girls love the new Ava Cowl (my oldest names is Ava) and they both wanted to model it and try it on and this fun pop of color cowl can go with any outfit. So grab your yarn, hook and get ready to get hooked on the Ava Cowl!
