A Chunky Knit Cowl for Keshia

Let the Christmas gifts continue! I knit this chunky cowl for my sister-in-law, Keshia. It's straight out of my book, Chunky Knits, and it was designed by Brenda Lavell.

I made my chunky cowl slightly smaller than the one Brenda designed by changing up the yarn just a bit. I love how it turned out. The open stitches create instant buttonholes, so you can move the placement of the buttons wherever you want depending on how tight or loose you want the cowl to fit.

 
Pattern: Goldenrod Cowl from Chunky Knits by Brenda Lavell

 
I bought the buttons from Knitting Diva, one of my local yarn stores here in Asheville. They're super thin, and I love the way they look with the icy blue yarn.

 
Keshia knows how to rock an accessory, so I'm excited to see what she wears this with!
