This is a CROCHET PATTERN, a very versatile crochet pattern, because you can make: A COWL, A NECKWARMER, A CAPELET, OR A SHAWL, EITHER SHORT OR LONG!!! You can stop at any time, and make the edging along the bottom, then finish the front and the frilly neck edge!! Wow, you can make all these things with the one pattern! And it has been designed FOR BEGINNERS!!! I have included photos of the steps to keep you informed and help you along. This is a super value for this pattern, just the FABULOUS REMOVABLE FLOWER in itself is worth the price!! Because you can make it to adorn hats, bags and purses, scarves, or other styles of neckwarmers or shawls!! You could even use them as drapery tie-backs!
