Haha, my plastic model has an unrealistically skinny neck so I had to bunch the cowl up to get the photo. I used the mock crochet stitch from Brenda Myers Lacy Scarflett ... such a fun stitch and I love the scallopy edge it makes.
Because the stitches are quite loose, I simply sewed a chunky button onto the outside of the cowl. That way, when the wind is blowing I can quickly thread the button through any of the stitches to snug it up and keep my neck cozy. If it's warmer out, or I go inside a store -- I can unbutton it just as quickly and let it hang loosely.
This was an easy peasy project, loom knit in the round using the 2nd largest Knifty Knitter loom. I know it wasn't the yellow one (the largest) because my Swing Jacket was still on it. :-} I haven't even looked at that loom in almost 2 weeks - but hopefully later this weekend I can pull it out and get to work. We are having a chore day today.
Thanks for stopping by.
