                Convertible Hat/Cowl

This hat/cowl is knitted as a cylinder with spiral cables.  It can be worn as a hat when the i-cord is drawn tightly or as a cowl.  The yarn is Malabrigo Worsted and featured on the Malabrigo Blog on April fool's day.  It only takes one skein.  The pattern can be purchased from Ravelry or Craftsy.

I made two of them already, one for my sister's birthday and one went to my college roommate who was getting chemotherapy and I thought could use a soft hat to keep her head warm.  The yarn is really soft by the way.  I will have to make another one for myself  and use it as a sample.
