Buttoned neck warmer in luxury yarns featuring simple lace and garter stitch stripes.

Third Beach

$8 CAD

A quick little project combining a double strand of Silk Fog in a simple lace pattern with the luxurious CashLuxe Fine done in contrasting garter ridges. Two buttonholes are worked on one end, but don’t let that limit you from using the holes in the lace pattern as buttonholes! Sew on several buttons for lots of options when wearing, or just use a couple. The cowl can be worn loose as shown as well as snug and cozy around the neck or at a rakish, asymmetrical angle.
