Pattern Description:

Step out in style with this glamourous beaded cowl, perfect for protecting your hair on a windy day or just for injecting some old-Hollywood sparkle into your outfit. Wonderfully flexible, it can be draped like a shawl, pulled up as a headscarf or worn double for neck warmth.

Pattern includes charts and written instructions; Harlow can be worked from either. Beads are added with a crochet hook and the edges are scalloped by working a special dropped stitch. More information on both of these techniques is included in the pattern.

Harlow has been fully tech edited. I am very grateful to my wonderful tech editor Rachel Atkinson.
