Braided Cowl & Slouchie Beanie

I few weeks ago, I posted a preview of my crochet project that looked like a mass of loops. Last night I finished and below explains the loops.

Being asthmatic and suffering COPD, winter months can be extremely hard on me but I do not like how a long scarf adds bulk under my coat.

I found a solution.

I made myself a braided cowl (yes with fringe) instead of a long scarf that will cover my neck AND a matching slouchie beanie.
