I am all about double-duty when it comes to just about anything.

I initially designed this piece as a cowl/necklace. When I received my shipments of Jul closures and Gypsy Garden yarn, I knew I needed to combine them together to create something special! I wore the piece around my neck one day, and I got a little warm. I unsnapped the closure, wrapped it around my waist and realized I had created a belt! I am still not sure which way I like better!

Note: If you do size up to make a bigger belt, and you use the gypsy garden, you might need a second skein. I wear a size 6 and used an entire skein of Gypsy Garden for my belt. I had a little leftover yarn when I made the same piece out of Rolling Stone
