A few months ago I finished a cowl for a good friend of mine who had given me some yarn for this project years ago.
The cowl was inspired by George R. R. Martin's children of the forest. It features tree branches or loops of root which might be eyes.
I knit it flat. Then instead of sewing it together I sewed buttons on it. That way Melanie could put it on without messing up her hair (see below).
It also makes the cowl versatile and able to be worn several different ways, shown below.
She loves it!
