Pattern Description:

You get two patterns or versions in one. This is a super textured pattern created from just knit and purl stitches, laid out in a double parallelogram pattern. It is very easy, suitable for a beginner and will knit up in a jiffy to make a stylish button scarf cowl or a long scarf for either men or women.

I've shown the cowl version and added statement coconut buttons, but you can chose to leave the buttons off, change the style of buttons - it's up to you.

A long version turns the pattern from length ways to horizontal and makes a cozy wrap around scarf to keep the bitterest cold out.
