If you are only adding one accessory to your wardrobe this year, make it a shoulder cozy! This versatile fashion item can be worn at least three different ways.
First, wear it around your shoulders similar to a poncho. It looks just as great for date night as for more casual outfits.
Second, drape it around your neck like a cowl to keep cool air off your neck at the office or wear it over a coat or sweater for extra warmth and style.
And thirdly, pull it up over your head as a hood and it will protect you from the wind and weather.
We are showing you three shoulder cozies in three different yarns.
The first is the Spiced Up Shoulder Cozy crocheted in Red Heart Unforgettable Waves yarn designed by Julie Farmer. You may have not tried this new thick-and-thin version of the popular Unforgettable yarn. It has an interesting texture and comes in beautifully shaded colors.
And our third design, the Multi-Wear Cowl is the same pattern as the previous knit cozy, but with the thick-and-thin Red Heart Unforgettable Waves yarn. Isn’t it great the way you can change the yarn and get a whole new look?
So to decide on the perfect shoulder cozy to add to your cold weather wardrobe, check out these patterns by clicking on the photos below. You might also consider crocheting or knitting a shoulder cozy as a special gift. It doesn’t have the fitting problems of a sweater, and will make a bigger impression than a hat or scarf.
