Mountain Berry Hat and Cowl
The Mountain Berry hat/cowl can change as quickly as the seasons and is the perfect accessory to keep you warm when traveling. Wear it loosely around your neck while indoors and pull it up over your ears when stepping outside. The i-cord runs through the top edge and is decorative when worn as a cowl and functional when pulled tight transitioning to a hat.
Long hair ponytails or buns are no problem. This versatile cowl is all you will need to pack for that trip to the mountains or train ride to European Christmas markets.
This cowl is knit bottom up starting with k1, p1 ribbing. A quilted stitch pattern and color changes transition colors throughout. At the top a simple eyelet lace row is threaded with a removable i-cord to cinch up the top when used as a hat.
