Buttons Cowl Pattern

Buttons Cowl

The Buttons Cowl is officially ready for prime time! My mom did a wonderful job of test knitting for me and knit this gorgeous version in Chestnut with natural wooden buttons as a lovely contrast to my original bright Peacock and pearly buttons version.

The cowl uses just one skein of TFA Green Label Aran Weight yarn and can easily be knit in just two short nights of casual knitting. A quick and satisfying project indeed! The fit is more like a face snuggling neck-warmer rather than a slouchy cowl, it's really designed to keep you toasty warm during the coldest of winter months.

  1. I just downloaded your cowl pattern and want to say thanks so much. It is a great design and a snugger cowl will be just ideal for the cold winter days.

  2. I, too, downloaded it, but now I am having a serious attack of hat lust!!!

    Is there a place to find a pattern for that - it's *adorable*!

  7. There's a gorgeous Whippet at the barn where Emma rides - his name is Chase and he'd make an awesome boyfriend for Stella. Great cowl!
    Thanks!

  8. Thank you, Tanis - although you are going to be the death of me ;-). Once I finish the wimple I am knitting from Purple label, I am casting on a Grammy's hat in Deep Sea and of course the lovely stole...I am going to have to stop reading you or I am never going to stop adding things to my queue! :-D. Now I want to knit both the Shedir and a button cowl too!

  9. Hi Tanis, I just received my Year In Color selection and I can't wait to wind the skein and get started! I love the cowl and the hat too. Most of all I had to say how excited I get when you post pics of Stella! I had a greyhound for 10 years and nothing gets me more than that sweet hound face. Ok, maybe your yarn affects me the same way :)

  15. Hi Tanis,

    Thank you very much for the cowl pattern. I live in Ottawa and it going to get much colder than the current -15C in the next few weeks. Your cowl pattern is close fitting and just perfect.

  16. I can hardly wait to make this neck warmer. I am a spinner and think it will look lovely in homespun with recycled buttons from a sweater my mother made for me years ago.
