I don’t like things that are too tight around my neck so I tend not to wear cowls, but I love this crochet pattern. The yarn is soft and it has such nice drape that it does not feel overpowering and the lacy stitches make it light. I wear it under a coat for a little extra warmth, but mostly I wear it for style over tops and jackets.
