If you have seen the new Hunger Games Movie, Catching Fire, you likely saw the awesomesauce cowl like thing that Katniss wears in the beginning of the movie. If you haven't, here it is along with the pattern by Lion Brand that it inspired. You can find the link to the crochet pattern here.
I could not wait to make one for myself. I used the yarn that Lion Brand recommended and only made a slight alteration to the pattern after reading the user reviews. I chained 70 in the beginning which added an additional 3 popcorns and then decreased to 60 on row 7 by skipping every sixth stitch. I loved the way it turned out and it took me less than 6 hours to make it.
