Introduction

Hills and Valleys Multicolored Double Duty Cowlette

This is another version of a pattern that has been very popular. I received very nice emails after I posted the first version of it at my blog.

This one is just as simple and ingenious. It is a small cowl which turns into a nifty hat!

Cord: With G hook and Black make a chain of 97 chs. Insert it in and out of the eyelet row of the cowlet and set aside.
Pulls (Make 2) 1st Part: With G hook and Black, ch 2. Rnd 1: Make 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around. Rnd 3: 1 sc in each sc around. Fasten off, leaving long tail to sew.
2nd Part: Choose one of the colors that you picked for the cowlette and, using hook G, ch 12, slip stitch in first chain, repeat until you have formed 5 loops, fasten off.
Insert the center part of this "flower" into the black "pistil" you have created and sew all around with leftover black tail so that the "flower" will be firmly in place. Repeat with the other one.

You can pull the cord to make it snuggly around your neck or pull the cord all the way and tie into a bow to turn the cowlette into a coquetish little hat.

I love it.  I did not make this particle pattern. I made another one and hate it but the cord idea is wonderful and I will add it to my and hopefully will than love it. Thank you for the idea.

You are welcome! Yes, I did not want to make a cord with nothing at the end and I had already exhausted my tassel-making for the moment, so I thought about flowers and they work really well. Whether you use it around your neck or you pull the cords and tie them into a bow and wear the cowlette as a nifty, spur-of-the-moment hat (like if it starts snowing) you will have something feminine and cute on!

Hope you enjoy thepattern, it is pretty simple.
