The Buttoned Up Cowl knitting pattern is comfy, cute and easy!

The Buttoned Up Cowl Knitting Pattern | littleredwindow.comI made the Buttoned Up Cowl recently for a friend and it turned out so cute and cozy that I knew I had to share it with you. The vast majority of my patterns are hats knit in the round and I know for some of you who haven’t learned to knit in the round, that can be a little intimidating. But this cowl, although it ends up being an infinity scarf is knit flat, which makes it a great project for beginners! If you make one, I’d love it if you’d share it with me!

The Buttoned Up Cowl Knitting Pattern | littleredwindow.comOverlap the two ribbed ends of the scarf and mark where the buttons will need to be placed to line up with the buttonholes. Stitch the buttons to the end of the cowl that does not have buttonholes with your needle and thread. Button up your cowl and enjoy!
