Featured: Howl (Hooded Cowl) Tutorial

I have so many (cute) jackets without hoods. And I live in Washington State.

This poses an obvious problem. How to keep the head dry in those more than occasional showers?

A Howl, of course! I love this hood/cowl hybrid. Totally adorable, very functional. You can pop one of these in your pocket and you’ll always have hair protection!
