Wrap-Around Cowl is knit lengthwise, working back and forth in garter stitch with rows of dropped stitches. When buttoned, it becomes a versatile cowl that can be simply draped around your neck or wrapped twice around for a close fit. Buttonholes are placed while you knit, so there is no need to pick up stitches at the end. A simple and enjoyable project, prefect for any level knitter. I used The Fibre Company's Canopy Worsted which is so beautiful to work with--and you'll only need 3 skeins for this project.
