Wear it up over the top of your head as a hood for extra warmth.
Or roll the top down for a shorter cowl.
However you choose to wear it--you can Cwtch up in it!
My testers made it in neutrals with a little pop of color for the edging, which looks very classy. I'm thinking a linen color with neon orange or neon pink trim would look terrifically crisp. You could work the trim in yarn that matches the piece too, for a clean and simple finish. I even made a sample cowl (sorry no pictures) in stripes that changed colors every couple of rows. Very versatile!
The yarn I used in the sample shown here is Caron Country in Deep Purple (a lovely microdenier acrylic and wool blend) with the trim in I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby in Monkey Red. (The same yarn I made my I Heart Boot Cuffs in--free pattern here.)
I think the pattern is ideal for an advanced beginner. It also includes simple instructions for changing up the circumference and height very easily.
You can find the Cwtch Cowl & Hood in my Ravelry shop here, my Craftsy shop here, or my Etsy shop here.
Happy Hooking, All!
