Went a little cray cray on the yarn ordering last week because Joann’s had free shipping and 30% off. So I got myself a nice chunky “Tweed Stripe” from Lion Brand Yarn (along with 4 other skeins of other colors). I’ve had my eye on a convertible cowl and also a hooded scarf pattern for awhile. I decided to go for the cowl because it seems like something I’ll use more often.
I didn’t do much of a tutorial since this is someone else’s pattern and you can find it here: http://thecrimsonowl.blogspot.com/2009/08/convertible-cowl-free-pattern.html
This is a great beginner pattern too, because any small errors you make are easily hidden!
I worked mine a little differently than the pattern, because the largest hook I have is size N. I tried to work my stitches a little looser than normal. I also started with a chain 70 instead of 55.
Finished a project AND blog post before midnight!
