So, I shared a few patterns I saw with my customer and she decided on this one...in black. It actually was a really quick crochet. Like a "less than 2-hour road trip and I was done" kind of quick. It can be worn open like the traditional cowl, or you can button it up to swaddle your neck in yarny goodness.
This cowl is off to its new owner and I hope it helps beat the not-so-winter-like, winter chill. (It's more like fall, early spring here.)
Gee. Now I kinda want one for myself....
