It's a cowl. It has a built in twist. It's like my cowl collar but much larger and it can be worn down or up as a hood. A HOOD! I made this iteration from substantial weight cotton (woven, not jersey) which I then dyed khaki.
Here's what I like about this design: Well, it's handsome. But also, it's already twisted gracefully as you see it here — just cram it over your head and it automatically looks sculptural and correct. No futzing!
But if you're a natural futzer and are compelled to futz, it does have areas where angled seams coalesce nicely and you might want to put those out front if you like them. I will not deny you.
It's non-gendered. All gendered? Unisex? I don't know, unisex seems creepy somehow. It gives me weird flashbacks to trying to get punk rock haircuts in disco/cocaine-infused hair salons in the 70's. Yes, I eventually just cut my own damn hair. But honestly, I've been meaning to mention this anyway: I want anyone to wear whatever they want. So while I feel a bit odd saying that this particular item is all-gendery, in general please know that I welcome having anyone wear anything I make. I think I've implied it before, but now I've just said it.
Okay where were we?
