I was recently reading a post about gifting homemade garments over the holiday season on the Three Dresses Project. While the thought basically terrifies me among the links she included in her post was Colette’s tutorial for the Winter Warmer Cowl.
Pitter patter I had to have one.
Their version is made up of two beautiful wools. It is very classic. Take a peek.
I made mine a little more everyday casual with a light fleece and plaid I had in the fabric closet.
On the Bright Side
I really love it. It was fast to make, the instruction were clear, and it looked just like the picture when I was finished!
On the Down Side
I’m going to have to shelf this one until Spring. It will work great in the fall and spring, but for a Minnesota winter it won’t really do the trick as is. However, I think with a few adjustments it would work for me.
I’m thinking of pulling it into more of a pyramid shape shape and a bit taller, so that it pulls over my shoulder and comes closer to my neck.
What do you think?
