  Joining the Squares ::
using the white yarn, join to the corner of two squares, 1chain, 1dc in to the top of each stitch of both squares, joining them together as you go, when you reach the end of the side, break off yarn.

Granny Cowl

Join another to the opposite end of one of these two in the same way as above, continue to do this until you have a strip of 4 squares.  Then do the same again, so you have 2 strips of 4 squares.

Granny Cowl 

 Join these two strips together using double crochet again in the same way as above, but joining all the squares together so you have a block of 8 squares in a 2 x 4 formation.  Join this block together down the side, using double crochet again, to form a circle.

Weave in any loose ends.
