I started this last night, and finished it up this morning. I just love this pattern http://thecrimsonowl.blogspot.com/2009/08/convertible-cowl-free-pattern.html . I'm not really big on scarves or hats, but I could totally wear this. I used two strands of Red Heart WW yarn held together. And the N hook as suggested. However, I chained 75 instead of 55 because I have such a big head. And I added two extra rows at the end of the project. Another row of dc and another row of hdc. It just wasn't long enough to come up and over my head. Once again, probably because I have such a big head! LOL Anyway, enjoy the photos.
With it drawn up over my head.
With it scrunched around my neck.
I love it!
