Designed as the matching accessory to the Persinette Pom Beanie, the Persinette Drawstring Cowl is the perfect way to stay warm this winter! Constructed with a unique drawstring closure (there’s no I-Cord in sight, don’t worry!) for that extra snug factor, this cowl nestles stylishly on your shoulder thanks to a slightly tapered shape and split ribbing. Grab both patterns and make the matching set for your winter wardrobe staples!

This is an Intermediate pattern. It assumes comfortable knowledge of common crochet stitches as well as some more specialised (the herringbone stitch and a modified X-stitch.) However there are also full photo tutorials and explanations provided; if you are an adventurous beginner then go for it! I’m always here to help if you need it.
