This coordinating set is made with Juicy Couture Luxe Velour XL, a super bulky, chenille-type yarn (also known as a blanked yarn). Juicy Couture Luxe Velour XL comes in great colors! I used two colorways – Angel, a snow white yarn, and Soft Glow, a subtle pink yarn – to make this quick and easy crochet cowl pattern.

This pattern uses just chain and single crochet stitches. It is striped with just one color used on each row. The Lush and Plush Cowl is perfect for beginners or for more experienced crocheters looking for something to work on while commuting, waiting in line, multi-tasking, or watching streaming.
