What was your inspiration?
I love diagonal texture and had knit a daintier version of this in a scarf pattern, but it hit me one day how the texture would pop worked in super bulky yarn.

Multifunctional! You can wear as a long cowl, close fitting cowl, scarf, ascot, you name it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Look for the most fabulous buttons and use a yarn that makes you weep, it's so beautiful. :)
