Here we are again at the precipice of crafting season. There are so many awesome gifts to make, and (suddenly) there’s not so much time. For this issue, Vickie designed a comfy cowl that looks lush but takes less time than you’d think. Crocheted in Patons Uplands—a chunky, tone-on-tone roving yarn—with a size K hook, the Cowler was created with a long gift list in mind. You can make a Cowler in an evening or two—and the buttons make it customizable, so you won’t get bored making multiples!

HOOK Size K/101/2 (6.5 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

NOTIONS Five 1” (2.5 cm) buttons; yarn needle; sewing needle and thread.

GAUGE 12 sts and 8 rows = 4” in patt.
