I made this cowl for a friend as a trade in services, she made me something I can't make, and I made her something she can't make! win/win!
I've shared the handspun yarn here
Here's the finished cowl:

And here it is on me, so you can see just how chunky it is!!

Wow, I LOOOVE those buttons! They fit the yarn so well. The style reminds me of those Katniss cowls I've seen around Smiley Great job!

Thanks so much everyone!  It was great to work with my handspun. I got the buttons from Knit Picks. I couldn't find anything locally!  And yes, Jexxican, bartering is awesome.
