The Honoré Cowl + Hat by Cirilia Rose is a fun and cozy convertible cowl that can also serve double-duty as a hat with the incorporation of a decorative i-cord. To be honest, this one had me at the pom-poms! The cowl is shaped with changes in needle size rather than with standard increases so, in the interest of full disclosure, you will need three needles for this project. The pattern as written proposes some luxurious yarns and double-stranding but these can be easily substituted provided a gauge of 18 sts / 4 in is obtained. A great gift idea!
