The Beauty of this Cowl is that it is 
easy to make in any yarns and colors.
This Cowl is bulky and warm, 
and perfect for the coming cold months.
Depending on the yarn, colors and buttons, 
you get a completely different look.
The Cowl measures about 36 inches around,
but You can even make it longer if you like.
