Introducing a new FREE crochet pattern - Turnabout! I got this idea in my head a few weeks back, and I just couldn't stop myself from grabbing a hook and some yarn and getting started immediately! It came together just as I had hoped and in only 2 days!

I've named it Turnabout for a couple reasons. First, the unusual construction method incorporates an about-face where you'll go from steadily increasing to immediately decreasing again - working a flat square followed by a flat triangle, and together they magically form a round object! Secondly, for its versatility in styling. Is it a bandana cowl with a tassel in front? A hood with a tassel in back? You decide!

The basic premise is to start at the point and increase in the center to form a big square. When the distance across the diagonal reaches the circumference you would like for your cowl/hood, or when you've used about 55-60% of your yarn, whichever comes first, you'll join the two opposite corners. Then you'll start decreasing again, in the center and along the edges, to form a triangle and close up the circle. Not making sense? Don't worry! There are plenty more words and pictures in the pattern to walk you through it.
