Pumpkin Hooded Cowl

Pumpkins, pumpkins & pumpkins are just about the best thing for fall! What better way to get ready for that crisp air than a Pumpkin Hooded Crochet Cowl?!

While this pattern looks adorable on my little one, I would totally rock it as well. It’s warm, cozy, and practical. And if you need a last-minute festive costume, this is an easy one. If you don’t have any bulky yarn lying around, try out this really cool technique to create bulky yarn from a worsted weight yarn: Bulky Yarn from 1 Skein
