Well, I love this Shawl Collared Cowl pattern from Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting. This time I used Misti Baby Alpaca Hand Painted Chunky yarn. I LUV this yarn. It is so soft, warm and drapes so pretty. I'm using buttons again from thewoodlot.etsy.com. I still need to block the cowl so I haven't sewn the buttons on yet, but I couldn't resist posting a photo of the outcome so far. I think it will go with everything in my closet!
And yes, it is as soft as it looks!
