This shoulder cozy can be found in the newest issue of Knotions Magazine - Knotions, February 2019!

I decided to go with a nice, basic half double crochet stitch pattern to allow the busy colorway to be the star of the show. I went a little further, and worked the half double crochet rounds with a turn so it would: number one – avoid a traveling seam, but also number two – to create a little extra texture, which I love!

As a “star of the show” piece, what better than an accessory? I have made two other shoulder cozies in the last two years, and I love wearing them over a long sleeve shirt. The cozy covers just enough without restricting arm movement, and I can pull my arms up into the cozy if they get cold.

This cozy is worked from the bottom up, ending with some decreases to hug you just above your shoulders so you can wear it with ease and comfort, but if you don’t like that, you can continue without the decreases and keep the same hook size going to create a cozy you can wear a little further down your arms to show off your shoulders.
