Monday's Cowl

Here's what Sunday gave up:  A simple little cowl.  It's made with one skein of bulky yarn.  I used Dream in Color Groovy in the color Good Luck Jade.  I love what the variegated yarn does in this stitch.  Thank you Barbara Walker.

sz. US 10.5 needle
1 large decorative button
tapestry needle for weaving in ends and sewing on your button

    Gauge isn't too important in this cowl.

    Bind off all stitches loosely.  Block your piece.  
    With purl side (wrong side) facing out, bring the two short sides of your cowl together, and overlapping slightly.  Fold the top third down in a decorative way that pleases you and sew the button in place to hold all 4 layers of fabric.  
    Wear any day of the week.
