The Urban Village Cowl takes the best features of a scarf, sweater and a cowl to keep you warm without being too bulky under your coat. This cowl has a large collar that drapes beautifully over your coat and a long length to sit inside your coat to keep your chest nice and warm.

This cowl is worked flat from end to end and utilizes both standard increases and short rows to shape a shawl collar. If additional length is desired, increase the number of repeats equally in Sections A & G. Instructions are included for making one-row buttonholes, with a link to a video tutorial.

Techniques:
Cables
Short rows
Button holes

Materials:
US size 10.5 6.5 mm needles or size to obtain gauge

3 buttons - 1” 25mm diameter

You can easily substitute yarn with any bulky weight yarn.
