Free Crocheted Cowl Pattern – Lipstick on my Cowl
Awesome indie designer Aileen, of the The Sunroom blog, has done it again – this time offering a free crocheted cowl pattern that is both practical and beautiful.
Look around the shops for fall jackets or winter coats and you’ll see a plethora of beige, brown, gray and black; best-selling neutral colors designed for artful blending with your current wardrobe. Functional, yes. But even as you take the coat from the hanger, you already know: it’s assembly-line, cookie-cutter boring.
Now think lipstick. And of how much a small application of glossy lipstick illuminates the neutral palette of facial makeup.
Look again at this crocheted Lipstick Cowl. Now imagine how this vibrant clothing accessory will complement and enhance even the most conservative of autumn or winter wardrobes.
Quick to make, versatile and so much punch for so little effort. Gotta love it. Très chic, très hip!
