This versatile, button closure cowl incorporates knits, purls, increase, and decrease to create a feminine, textured cowl. As the fabric is reversible, it can be worn just as a round cowl, or twisted as a mobius. Another part of the versatility comes from the multiple buttons, which don’t have to be buttoned in order or buttoned all the way. If you want to substitute with a yarn other than Berroco’s Voyage, be sure to choose a chainette yarn, as they have very unique properties that have been taken into consideration in this design (this is the reason for the seemingly small gauge for such large needles).
