My grandmother never went out without her makeup. She always wanted to present her “best foot forward” and that meant makeup and jewelry and watching her darken her eyebrows with this odd little brush. I’m not sure that she would have been called stylish, but Grandma did love her clothes. I think she would like the function and fashion of this cowl. You can choose to make the crocheted buttonholes or change it to buttonhole. I chose three larger buttons for my cowl, but you could choose one, two, or ten if that makes you happy. I think buttons are what make a piece truly unique when it comes to knitting this cowl. So, make sure that you choose the perfect buttons for your cowl.

This pattern is meant for an adventurous novice to advanced knitter and all those in-between.
