Beautiful textured cowls are a fabulous way to accessorize your outfit and the Spiral Twist Cowl is a fabulous one to use. One of the many things that I love about crochet is the texture that can be created with a few advanced crochet stitches. Also don’t forget that you can always add a simple furry trim to any design to give it a little more fun and pop. The Spiral Twist Cowl can be customized in any way you like and this beautiful texture will become addicting to make!
