… a cross between a cowl and a ruff…
A Crochet cowl for you to make. I first called this a ‘ruff-neck cowl’ because that is exactly what it looked like a cross between a cowl and a ruff (of the Elizabethan kind ) Then I reconsidered and renamed it the ruffled neck warmer cowl!
I wore this frequently last week and it kept me snug during the rainy, cold and windy mornings. If you would like to know how to crochet it read on…
I used a Hook size 10mm and the yarn was a King Cole Value, super Chunky in grey x 1 and denim x 1.
The Ruffled Neck Cowl Pattern:
I have a clover tassel maker in the large size, I used it to make the tassels ion this cowl. However you can also use a book!
I have a tutorial on making fringe tassels here you can adapt this to make tassel ends just by tying off the tops securely.

When I crochet a pattern I like it to be adaptable, I like to be able to make it in my own style. Surely thats the beauty of a handmade item, the fact that its unique, that you won’t see 10 of them walking down the high street?
I like a designer to suggest an alternative colour palette or colour patterns, ie stripes or blocks?
Am I alone in this? Do you follow a pattern down to the last stitch, colour and yarn or do you enjoy experimenting?
