Swanky Glam Cowl - Free Crochet Pattern: Written Instructions and Chart

Add sparkle to your outfits with this Swanky Glam Cowl!

*Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

Swanky Glam Cowl 

Materials used:
- 1 ball of RED HEART Boutique Swanky, color Sterling (I still had enough left over yarn from 1 ball)
- 5 mm crochet hook;
- yarn needle.

Many thanks to Red Hearts Yarn for sponsoring the yarn used for this pattern!

Cowl Size: 20 cm wide x 80 cm circumference

Stitches, terms (US) and abbreviations used:
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
V- st = ( 1dc, 1ch, 1dc) made into same stitch
csdc = chainless starting double crochet (See the Video Tutorial by Moogly) (If you don't master the csdc stitch,  you can use ch3 as alternative )
sk = skip

The cowl is worked in rounds. You can make it wider adding more repeat rounds.
You can transform this cowl into an infinity scarf, starting with more chains (eventually double the number of chains for the cowl); the total number of the stitches should be a multiple of 11. You will need additional yarn.
The tab is optional.
