Convertible Crochet Cowl

Standard

Went a little cray cray on the yarn ordering last week because Joann’s had free shipping and 30% off.

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
