This was going to be a Christmas present but another birthday came and claimed it.
Knit of Classic Elite Yarns Believe, a little less than 2 skeins purchased from a thrift store. It is a cotton rayon blend.
This is a free pattern on Ravelry using bulky yarn which I cast on 120 stitches and #8 needles for this drapey slubby worsted weight yarn. The purchased navy buttons are beside it in the photo. This cowl is knit back and forth and secured with buttons. I did not make button holes.
I thought folks that don't knit in the round might like this one.

The blue is what took it from a Christmas present to the birthday present. I had a friend whose birthday was last Saturday and decided to gift it to her since she loves this color.

It is a quick knit. I can't say mindless but it is easy. Nice combination of cables and lace. I will place my buttons so the bottom edge opens and sew the top edge closed as in the Ravelry photo.

Love th color, the buttons, the design, the knitting.

Great job!

Is it possible to knit it so the cowl sits closer to the neck? I don't care for that much space.
The picture is a little deceiving I guess. This just fits over the head and fairly close to the neck. The bottom edge is not joined so it flares out. I don't care for big sloppy cowls either.
