Claire Inspired Cowl Pattern

Hello, Hello!  I love this time of year ~ the days get shorter, the nights get longer and we spend more time snuggling on the sofa watching TV and crocheting of course!  I am excited to share this Claire Inspired Cowl with you today….

Originally written for Seven Thirty Three Blog.

Have you been following the new Outlander series on Starz?  A few friends and I meet for a girls night each week to watch.  I think that it was during the second episode that the main character, Claire, was seen wearing a lovely woollen cowl.  The girls and I looked at each other and declared “we need to make one!”  I scoured the internet for a pattern and tried a few variations of my own before coming up with this cowl.  We all agreed that it needed to have a twist and be long enough to loop twice around.  I think that we have as close to the original as possible.  This is a super warm and bulky cowl that would be perfect for the Scottish Highlands *wink*.
