Natty Cowl

Description

A soft, buttoned cowl in two sizes (S/L) to match the Tweed Set Mitts, knit in a subtle houndstooth textured fabric, that can be worn in several directions, depending on how the buttons are placed. Feminine in a pastel colorway, this piece easily transitions to a menswear favorite when knit in a neutral or undyed shade. Choosing a luster wool yarn or a blend with some silk will enhance the cowl’s subtle texture. This project is a relaxing knit, perfect for a beginner—or spectator knitting for the more experienced—that produces a sophisticated finished look. 

Shown here: small cap knit in Sincere Sheep Luminous, colorway Hathor's Gem, with Moving Mud custom buttons
