NOTES: The Cowl is knit as a simple rectangle, all in Garter stitch, with four buttonholes. Two buttons are sewed to the end of the Cowl opposite 2 of the buttonholes, allowing the Cowl to be buttoned in various creative ways. You can choose which 2 buttonholes to sew your buttons opposite from - we loved our choice of the first and the third buttonhole. The Cowl is designed with the option to button it in creative ways. You can even slip the button through 2 of the buttonholes to create a dimensional fold in the knitting.

Additional Materials

GAUGE:
About 9 stitches = 4 in. (10 cm) in Garter stitch (knit every row). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.
