With or Without buttons?
We all know that a crochet cowl is a versatile scarf that can be worn in a variety of ways. It can be worn loosely around the neck, or it can be buttoned together to create a more fitted look. The buttons can be decorative or functional, depending on your preference
The thing with this textured crochet cowl pattern is that it calls for a stylish button!
But, if you prefer it without, just sew the rectangle and fold it!

What will it be? Cowl, an Infinity scarf, or a Snood?
You’re looking to crochet a neck warmer, but you’re not sure what to call it.
Well, let me break it down for you.
A crochet cowl is a tube of fabric that is worn around the neck. It can be short or long, and it can be made from any type of yarn. A snood is similar to a cowl, but it is typically wider and longer. It can also be worn as a hood. And finally, an infinity scarf is a long scarf that is made in a loop. It can be worn in a variety of ways, including as a cowl or a snood.
Which one should you make? It really depends on your personal preference.
If you want something that is versatile and can be worn in a variety of ways, then an infinity scarf is a good choice. But if you want something that is warm and cozy, then a cowl or snood is a better option.
No matter what you choose, I’m sure you’ll be warm and stylish this winter!
