If you live somewhere where the weather gets really cold, I highly recommend you make yourself (and all your friends) a Sierra Nevada Hood! The pattern works up really quickly by using the super bulky faux fur yarn, and it is the softest, warmest piece I’ve ever tried!

This cowl has so much surface area that it easily covers your neck and would even cover an open neckline of a shirt. It would be great for spring or fall, as well as for relatively mild winter days. And I know this pattern looks complicated, but trust me that the actual stitches are simple!
I can’t praise the texture enough. I’ve always been a fan of post stitches, as soon as I got familiar enough with them to like doing it (I used to hate them as a beginner and now I’m doing designs with them!) It gives you such an impressive look with a very approachable technique. That’s actually why I clicked on this pattern on Ravelry in the first place, the texture.
This pattern is so fun, simple, and easy. The ribbing takes the bulk of the time, and then suddenly you just do a few rows of basic shaping and it’s done, you have a new accessory ready to go! The texture lends itself to both solid and variegated yarns beautifully, and lets you choose if you want a neutral to go with everything or a bright rainbow to add some pop to your outfit!
When I saw this gorgeous little cable collar on Ravelry, meant to go under your coat and basically add a warm turtleneck “sweater” (top half) layer without adding the thick bulk of the full thing, I was intrigued. Most of my wardrobe is basic V-neck tees from Target, and I’d love something to cover my chest below my coat! This pattern is the perfect combination. It’s gorgeous, it’s interesting and stitches up relatively quickly, and it’s incredibly warm and comfortable!
This is a crochet pattern review of the You’re Not Alone Cowl pattern from designer The Cozy Cottage Crochet. Review done by A Stitch Shy of Normal for EyeLoveKnots.
This pattern is so easy but looks very impressive, so it’s a wonderful option for a gift because it says that you thought of the recipient and wanted them to have something gorgeous and special! I can totally see this one being a great option for holiday gifts, especially in some rich greens and burgundy shades as well as this exact gold I chose.
