Rilee hat/cowl pattern
Knit just one piece and wear it as a slouchy hat or as a cowl. Don’t you just love getting more looks from your knitting than one? Oh and can you say stash buster?
A simple cable stitch, added beads (how to video link included) and ribbing make for a very enjoyable knit.
The “build in” cord stop makes it possible to switch it from a hat, even a messy bun hat to a cowl in an instance.
