I started this cowl for MareMare back in July when she and I spent a crafty weekend together in WA with another friend. I had intended to finish it quickly so she could enjoy it as soon as fall arrived but... well... that didn't quite happen. I finally sewed the buttons on today, just 7 months later Smiley. Better late than never, I suppose!



The pattern is from Malabrigo Booklet 3 (http://www.malabrigoyarn.com/booklet3/). I used Cascade 128 yarn that I purchased from a shop near where we were staying in Pt Townsend.

I sewed the buttons onto the end because I liked the idea of wearing it like an infinity scarf or even unbuttoning and wearing it like a normal scarf. I realize now that I probably should have sewn the buttons onto the side instead to make it easier to wear as a cowl (Mare, feel free to move them if you want Smiley).



The pattern includes a fair amount of cabling but otherwise it's really simple and the repeat is easy to remember.



I plan to make one of these for myself this year. It will probably take me at least 7 months to finish mine too!

Worth the wait!  A very complex-looking pattern, nicely stitched, in yummy yarn in a beautiful color...it will look great on Mare! Cheesy

That is really pretty, and you did a loevly job. I've stayed away from cables in the past, but you said the pattern is an easy one. Is it easy enough to be a first cable project? As to it being belated...Haven't you ever given a half finished project with promises to finish it quickly? I think everyone in my family has had at least one Christmas present with pins or needles still in it!

jigdancer, I think it would be a great project for learning cabling. There are only 2 cable stitches required for each right side row - one right and one left Smiley.

Cables are really easy once you get the hang of it! Give it a try!! Smiley
