Cowl

I managed to squeeze in one crafty-adventure into my Thanksgiving break (which was marvelous, btw -- three different types of bird!).  I've been wanting to try my hand at making a cowl ever since the weather turned colder.  I used my biggest crochet hook and the Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn I picked up recently (that lovely Seattle Sea Mist color was calling my name, and it wouldn't hush!).

I searched Pinterest for patterns, and ended up using a little of this (which introduced me to the Herringbone Half Double Crochet) and a little of that (to narrow the pattern slightly).

Hi Bekka:

I love the look of this cowl and was thinking of making one for a gift for my friend's birthday. Can you explain a little more how you combined both patterns to make the cowl? Thank you!
