Felix Faux Fur-Lined Cowl

It’s always fun to be able to combine crafts like crochet and sewing, and this cowl features both! If you’re new to either craft, don’t worry; Felix is still the perfect project for you. As shown, the lining is a faux fur fabric which can be found on the bolt at a fabric store. You might also consider fleece or another soft fabric if fur isn’t your thing. Top things off with a handmade monogrammed tag, and you have a completely personalized gift for someone special.
