With the onset of cold weather this winter I decided I wanted to try wearing a cowl. It would keep my neck warm, but it wouldn’t take up so much space. When you have to carry all your winter gear around campus having smaller things is better. So, I set out to find crochet cowl patterns, which there really isn’t that many nice ones out there. On-line I ran into the pattern for this one, and I instantly liked it. So with some left over grey Red Heart Soft Yarn I started at it. It didn’t take me more than a couple hours. Originally I had buttons in the back, like the original. Then, I realized they were bound to get caught in my hair, so I took them off and sewed up the back seam. The cowl is nice and toasty, as I was taking photos, snow started to fall. It’s great because it fits into the neck opening of my jacket and doesn’t create bulk under the jacket.
