Lush Alpaca and Silk snuggles up against your neck for warmth and a romantic, dressed-up accent. This lacy knit button-up cowl is an easy way to accessorize an outfit and provide instant soft comfort!

Two beautiful, open, lacy stitch patterns combine to create a unique cowl and makes for interesting knitting. An angled button band allows you to wear the cowl many different ways. Keep it open by only using 1 or 2 buttons and wear it like a soft scarf/collar. Button 3 or 4 buttons to wear it as a stylish cowl.

The cowl is also wide enough to be worn as an open hood, draped around your head to keep your ears warm. See my blog entry for photos of different ways to wear this cowl!

PLUS, only 2 balls are needed of the wonderfully soft Knit Picks Andean Silk yarn. A fabulous, thoughtful gift that looks expensive, but won’t break the bank!
