Simple Cozy Cowl

Standard

It’s a new year and I was ready for a new cowl to sink my face into against that brisk Chicago winter wind.

I kept this super simple. It’s just double crochet all the way, 3 strands, on a gigantic S hook (which I bought just for this project). Honestly I didn’t even count my starting chain, I just chained along until it seemed like a good length for me.

Convertible Crochet Cowl

Standard

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.

Mmm cozy.

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
