This cowl is super warm and so cozy! When I wear it I feel like a Stark, but it was actually inspired by an outfit that Daenerys wore in season 7. It can be pulled down around your shoulders for a Dany inspired look, or for a more modern accessory, bunch it together in the front.

- Lion Brand, “Go For Faux”, Mink (64 yd; 60 m/100 g; 3.5 oz), 1 skein
- Hook — U.S. M/N (9.0mm)
- Yarn needle
- 2 buttons (Size: 7/8″ [22mm])
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- hdc – half double crochet

4”x4” = 7 sc and 8 rows
S/M: 40” long and 10” wide
L: 45” long and 12” wide
Ch 2 does not count as a stitch throughout
Ch 22 (27)
Row 1: hdc in 3rd st from hook, hdc in ea of next 19 (24) sts, turn, ch 2 (20sts, 25 sts)
Rows 2-66 (76): 1 hdc in ea, turn, ch 2 (20sts, 25 sts)
FLO (front loop only) — In this pattern FLO refers to the prominent front stitches in every other row of the piece. Half double crochet creates a fabric which has a look similar to ribbing. We loosely ch 1 between the sc sts because there is another row between the FLOs. If you were to turn the piece over, you’d see the alternating FLOs on the other side.
Position the piece so that the tail is in the bottom right corner. Begin in the top right corner by anchoring the yarn to the 3rd row from the top and 1 FLO to the left.
Row 1-2: *Ch 1, sc in FLO of the next hdc repeat * to the 2nd to last FLO, turn
Row 3: Work sc into the corner edge of piece, *ch 1, sc in FLO of the next hdc repeat * finishing at the top left corner.
Good news! The placement of the buttons doesn’t have to be exact. They just need to be parallel to each other and along the bottom right edge of the right side. I placed mine on rows 3 and 12 about 4 sts in.
While wearing the cowl, I just popped the buttons through the stitches that gave the best look.
