|The button detail transforms an otherwise plain cowl|
I have knitted a few accordion cowls. It's a very simple pattern.
PatternCast on 120 stitches. Join in the round being careful not to twist the stitches.
Knit 5 rows plain, then 5 rows purl.
Continue until the cowl is the desired size and cast off
Couldn't be easier ....
I used some wonderfully thick yarn (10 ply) from my stash (2 x 50g balls) and size 5.50mm circular needles and decided to use a few buttons to create quite a contemporary look.
I had a lot of fun with the buttons. I had originally decided on 3 large wooden buttons, but, in the spirit of Christmas, decided to go overboard and in the end, I used 9.
|A total of 9 wooden buttons|
I even experimented with sewing them on. I used the yarn as a long stitch between the buttons so it could be seen.
Roll on winter ..
