I found this pattern on Ravelry (Convertible Cowl by JustessDesigns) and had to have a go. You can also find the details on her fabulous blog http://thecrimsonowl.blogspot.com. I have made it in beautiful NZ pure wool but my timing is a bit off as we have just started summer in my part of the world. I couldn't wait until winter to make it! I'll just have to wait about 4-5 months before it gets cold enough to wear it. It was so quick to make - about 2 and a bit hours from start to finish - so I can see a few more of these being made for gifts all ready for next year.
