I’m now happy to introduce you to the Easy Summer Mesh Lace Cowl Free Crochet Pattern!
Lacy & lightweight crochet cowl pattern.
This summer cowl is lightweight and made from a simple one-crochet rectangle that joins each end together to create the circle, and you are done! See how easy they are?

The good thing is this beginner crochet cowl pattern is easy to adjust the wider or thickness of the cowl scarf by simply crocheting more rows to the rectangle.
What is the best yarn for crocheting a summer cowl?
Cotton yarn: cotton yarn they are my favorite to work with because it doesn’t lock up all the heat like other materials. Moreover, the cotton is lightweight and breathable. You will feel comfortable on your skin. It is a second skin-like yarn that you will looooove.
Bamboo yarn: bamboo yarn is ultra soft, great for sensitive skin, breathable, and lightweight; they give a nice drape and shine. Moreover, they are also a bit more thicker and stronger fiber than cotton.
Linen yarn: Linen yarn is known for its strength, durability, quick drying, non-pilling, and gets even more softer over time after washing. Moreover, linen needs less water consumption than cotton, so it is better for the environment.
Hemp yarn: Hemp yarn is stronger, more durable, and they are neutrally pest-resistant, so it pesticide free. They are eco-friendly fiber yarn that needs less water consumption. However, they are more expensive, and not many selections of the color due to their difficulty to dye.
Overall, all plant fiber is great for crocheting a cowl; however in this free easy crochet lace mesh cowl for summer.
You can also use any polyester fiber. It is fine because the open mesh stitch will give you a cool breezy when you wear them.
