Convertible Cowl

Here is another low budget, high impact gift for the Holidays, or anytime really. This convertible cowl is fantastic for keeping you warm on a chilly day. As with all crochet and knitting projects depending on your yarn choice is can be budget friendly or super luxurious. I took these photos with it on my six year old and it is obviously a bit big, but I find it quite difficult to take decent pictures of myself, so there you go. It would be very easy to make a smaller version for a child though. You can wear this around your neck, or pulled down over your shoulders, or pulled up over your head to wear as a hood. This was a quick project, it took me just under three hours, so if you have an evening free and you are in need of a beautiful, warming gift for someone, give it a try. Even if you don’t already know how to crochet it would only take you a bit to learn the stitch and then you could make a beautiful convertible cowl. The pattern is free (yay budget!) and the results are fabulous. What is your go to winter accessory? What can you not leave the house without? Is it a pair of gloves, or do you have to have a hat on? Is a scarf the one thing you reach for?

    I love that cowl; I haven’t crocheted since I was a child I might have to pick it back up so I can make one of these. Favorite winter accessory is my goofy homemade armwarmers, I love them and they do double duty of keeping my hands and arms warm.

  2. I think I may have to make myself one of these!! During this horrible weather, I have to wear one of my ever growing collection of wraps and shawls!

    That is gorgeous Jennifer (and I think your model is a star!) Things are calming down around here – the boys are meant to finish school tonight but another heavy snowfall during the night might mean an extra day to the holidays! I am just coming to the end of my pair of socks and then I might give this cowl a go – I never feel properly dressed without something keeping the chills from my neck at this time of year – thanks for the link 😀

    Your daughter is so sweet posing like that for your photos!!
    My absolutely essential item is a scarf – I can’t go out without my neck being all warm and protected from the arctic winds we’re getting at the moment!
