This is a cross between a cowl and a statement necklace. The original pattern is by Shehnaaz from Crochet Dreamz. It’s full in the front, but the back is narrow. Even though you don’t get as much coverage on the back of your neck like a traditional cowl or scarf, this still keeps in plenty of warmth.
It fits nicely under long hair and won’t bunch up under a the neck of a coat. It also uses regular worsted weight yarn, which comes in every color, material, and texture you can think of.
