The Mesa View Cowl features slipped-stitch selvedges and squishy garter borders that flow smoothly into the easily memorized garter chevron pattern. This versatile accessory makes a perfect showcase for your favorite solid and semi-solid yarns and special lightweight buttons. Can be worn as a long cowl, wrapped double for a cozy shorter cowl, or left unbuttoned and worn as a scarf.

Construction notes:
The Mesa View cowl is worked flat; both written and charted instructions for the stitch pattern are provided. Buttonholes are worked into the garter border of one edge, and buttons are sewn on to the other side.
