calm cowl....

 A girl can never have too many accessories!
and this one really keeps the cold August winds away...
 I made just a few little changes to the pattern to suit my individual needs
and added a little row of pearl buttons,
which catch the light and add a little extra texture.
Both the changes to the pattern and addition of buttons were inspired by fellow Ravelry members.
One of the things I love about Ravelry,
is that you can look at what others have done with patterns
and be inspired by them  ♥
It measures approx 1.5mtrs long
and I will be wearing it doubled as above
but here is a picy of it showing the full length.
I used 3.5 balls of Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8 ply
(70% Wool, 30% Alpaca) a 4.5mm hook
& Beutron buttons - SR0834

You can find this lovely pattern by Suzana Davidovic
on Ravelry Here
my slight changes to the pattern can be found
on my Ravelry project page for this pattern Here

I hope you are having a delightful day
~ Gillian ♥

It's gorgeous Gillian. I love the colour and the pearl buttons are a pretty embellishment to add. I really want to make a cowl for myself too this winter but I seem to be running out of time. x

Beautiful scarf, really nice colour, it's one of those colours that will probably go with almost anything which is always a good things

This is such a lovely cowl and your addition of the pearl buttons is delicious! :) I'm quite in awe of the amount of knitting and crochet you seem to get done.

I made one of these for my sister last winter. It's such a lovely easy pattern. Love your addition of the buttons.

I love the addition of the buttons! I ended up here via Ravelry looking for a solution to the weird spiraling groove my Calm Cowl has developed where the rows join and I think the buttons will do the trick rather than worrying about the pattern.

Hi Gill, I always knew you were amazingly crafty but you are truly talented. I want one of everything! Including Jacob's scarf! So glad we talked about your blog on Sunday. Much love x
