I wanted to make a light cowl that would keep me slightly warm during some of the cooler times in the spring and summer. When I found A Grey Loop by Helen G, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. I only made the cowl half as wide as it is in the pattern because it is a bit bulky for me otherwise. That was the great thing about this pattern, you can modify the cowl to be as short or long as you like! I loved working with The Fibre Company's Acadia because it is so soft and squishy.
