Original Pattern: Framed Slouch
Knitter Extraordinaire: Jane (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Changed the original hat pattern into a cozy cowl. Project page with great details on how to modify can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: If you have ever wanted to modify a pattern but too nervous to know where to start, then this is the mod for you. Jane started with a hat design she loved, and just added repeats of the chart, without any decreasing for the crown. Simple, but super effective- This cowl is stunning! Are there any hat patterns you know of that would be beautiful cowls? You should try this mod!
