Wow, this is more a sampler project than anything else. The various stitches and colors add a tremendous amount of interest to what could be an ordinary accessory. I love the dual duty of both cowl and hood. Like the designer suggests, this is a great project to use up some of those small amounts of yarn leftover from other projects.

A very colorful and easy to make striped cowl. This color scheme would work with so many different outfits and looks. Love the way the buttons compliment the rest of the cowl. This pattern is sized for using a size one weighted yarn so plan accordingly if you want to change the yarn weight.

I love crocheting the moss stitch. It works up so quickly that projects seem to take half the time. I like the way the stitch using alternating colours for each row creates an almost plaid type look for this cowl. The bottom portion of the cowl is rather plain, but the alternating colours liven it up.

Wow, this is an impressive piece. I am in awe of the spectacular look of the use of five different yarn colors. This would be quite an undertaking for me. I would like to see what this looks like on a woman. I feel like I don't quite understand what the idea is behind it. I mean, does it cover fully over the shoulders? Just the neck and chest? It would be nice to see that.
