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.

I’m Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. Most of my patterns are seamless and many are knit from the top-down. They are written with the beginner knitter in mind, providing lots of detailed instructions. I provide pattern support for all my designs so feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions-I love to help and make sure my customers enjoy the knitting process (not to mention the finished piece!)
