Sometimes, the easiest things are the most pleasant. This cowl with its reversible patterning and easy to remember lace, offers a much needed diversion and enjoyable experience!

Easily customizable to be wider or longer, depending to your needs, Chopped! has written and charted instructions as well as thorough photography.

The only thing I cannot do is give you my buttons!

If you like the photography, give big kudos to my friend Alisha Irish, a knitter with a keen eye for the camera!!!
