This simple and cozy cowl design has been living in my brain for at least 6 months. I originally designed it for a worsted weight, but after knitting it up a couple times, I realized it was better suited for a super soft and light weight bulky yarn. This Plymouth Yarns Baby Alpaca Grande is the perfect yarn for this design. The lovely ceramic buttons are hand made from beadfreaky on Etsy. Button closure allows it to be worn a variety of ways.
Here is Nicolet Cowl, named for the Nicolet National Forest in Northern Wisconsin, where things just seem to move a little more slowly. It's truly one of those places where you breathe a little more deeply and see things a little more vividly. The tension really does seem to leave you.....at least for a little while.
