A fitting match for its original partner, Moorside Mitts

Moorside Cowl is a stylish, textured neck warmer with buttoned detailing that gives you the choice to wear it however you like. The Moorside stitch pattern is complex-looking, but is simple in its application. This makes for a uniquely original stitch pattern that results in a lacy appearance, but produces an extremely cozy and stretchy fabric.

It is knitted flat from the bottom up. The button loops are just a line of single crochet edging and crocheted chains that are added after binding off. Link to a YouTube tutorial for crochet help can be found here:
