Introducing the “Stained Glass Cowl”

Learn to Crochet Granny Squares

This is a fun, easy and modern take on the granny square. In this pattern you will learn how to make a small granny square and how to join them. You will also learn some special single crochet stitches as well as surface crochet. It’s really fun to plan out the colors and using Red Heart Super Saver Stripes for the colored part makes it easy to get colors that all work well together. Using Super Saver Solids for the body of the cowl make this an inexpensive project. You’ll probably want to make more than one! I did and I can’t decide which is my favorite. What colors will you choose? Can’t wait to see your pictures! #StainedGlassCowl


Approximately 250 yards of worsted weight (#4) yarn combined in a multiples colors and also a solid contrasting color. I used:

Black Cowl

Gray Cowl
