An original Perknitious design, this close-fitting, cabled cowl knits up quickly in your favorite shade of super bulky yarn on size 15 (10 mm) needles. Three buttons (or more, if you choose) allow a number of variations for closing and wearing the cowl, from single-buttoned shoulder warmer to three-buttoned slouchy cowl. It is named in honor of some of my fabulous Laura-friends, but it would make a nice gift for any of your loved ones, or for yourself!
The pattern download is a 3-page pdf file with color pictures, and provides both written instructions and a chart for your convenience.
