Textured Hooded Cowl

With the insanely warm weather we are experiencing, it seems almost silly to be sharing this pattern, but I loved it so much I couldn’t keep it to myself! It is a great gift idea if you are on the search for something to work up before the upcoming holiday season.

image_medium2ha While on a roadtrip with a good friend we decided to stop at a couple craft stores because we are both big crafting types. We obviously couldn’t stop at a craft store and NOT get something, so I ended up picking up this super soft teal yarn with the intention of taking the time to make something for myself for a change. After waivering on what exactly to make I decided this beautiful cowl would look stunning with any coat or outfit I would choose this winter.

While I wouldn’t classify it as a beginner pattern per say, its definitely an easier pattern for someone that is looking to branch out a bit into new projects and challenges. As with many of the patterns I share on here, this can be found on Ravelry. It is for sale in Two Brothers Blankets’ Ravelry store HERE.

I’m sure that changing up the type of fibre, or even including some variegated yarns, could make for a great spin on this pattern. It is a warm and comfortable cowl, now I just need to work up some matching fingerless gloves or something similar to finish the set!

I hope that everyone had a great Christmas with your friends and family! Today’s pattern is actually one that I found to create Christmas gifts for my nieces! This pattern is great! Easy to follow, and adorable when finished… I really can’t say enough about it.



This pattern was created by Heidi May of The Velvet Acorn. You can find her page HERE and her Etsy shop HERE. I absolutely love the designs she has created and can’t wait to try out more in the future!

I even added a little pink bow for my God Daughter’s cowl to give it that extra special touch!

I highly recommend this pattern, and know I’ll be making more in the future (friends have already approached me about getting these for their children)!

Enjoy, and please share your finished projects, including your cowls if you try this pattern, on our Facebook page HERE!
