If you can chain, single crochet, and double crochet, you can make this fabulous convertible cowl! With a deceptively simple stitch pattern and a few quick construction elements, even beginners can work this stylish wardrobe staple. Wear it four different ways – stitch it in two different yarn weights – paint it in endless color combinations! Great for gift-giving, stashbusting, and just plain looking sweet.
Though it can be used by anybody, this pattern is written specifically for use by beginners and easy-level crocheters – I wanted to offer a high-quality, clear pattern that is also unique and interesting for beginners to make! The pattern includes a quick-reference list of abbreviations for ease of pattern reading and phototutorials with step-by-step instructions.
The Rhiannon Convertible Hooded Cowl is long enough to wear as a small wrap vest, while the leaf motif drawstring can convert it to a closed, deep-hooded capelet look. The open ended front has enough room to double up the cowl around your neck for extra warmth, and the back of the hood comes to a sweet but subtle point.
