Pattern Description:

Set your fall and winter wardrobe ablaze with this fashionable and functional cowl with beaded tendrils. Glass beads accent the tendrils adding color, luminosity, and style. While the design of this cowl has a unique trick to protect against cold northern winds: an optional beaded knit button which fastens to keep you cozy and comfortable! Fun to knit and stylish to wear, this cowl will transition with you throughout your busy day.

Best of all, it only requires an advanced beginner skill level. Tech edited written directions, charted directions, a button diagram, and two You Tube videos (one on tendrils and one on the button), make this cowl appear complex to knit, but in reality simple to create.

The button and button holes are optional. Fastening the button tightens the 19"/ 48cm circumference to 16"/ 40.5cm.
