I made this crochet piece to be a mini-ponchette or capelet but then I realized it was a very convertible piece. Today I doubled up to make a really cute striped cowl.

      @65mary65 I wondered if anyone would ask about that! I was over at The Embarcadero by the Ferry Building, a bit of a touristy area, and I noticed that they now have a new display so the concrete benches to sit on in the area have all these different little creatures added to them. It’s a cool little display.
