Knit in soft, squishy bulky weight yarn, this cowl combines texture with deep cables. The Valeraine Cowl is knit flat with a line of buttonholes added along the final edge.

Four buttons bring a pop of color and versatility to this piece. Close one or two buttons to wear the cowl loose around the shoulders, or button all four on blustery days for a snug column around your neck to keep your face warm.

Instructions are both written and charted. Exact gauge is not critical but will affect the size of the finished cowl.
