Gothic Lace Cowl complete!

Just in time for Christmas, it’s finished!

Gothic Lace Cowl, a knitted cowl complete with buttons!

The Gothic Lace Cowl is a free pattern on Ravelry.  Knit with worsted weight yarn, it works up relatively quickly.  I chose to knit the long cowl version, so it’s a loop that will wrap twice around your neck.

For this project I used Berroco Vintage in 5176, a heathery orange.

The buttons were the “Champagne Heirloom Buttons” by BasicGrey.  I believe I got these adorable plastic buttons from KnitPicks a while back, but I’m not 100% sure.

The buttonloops are crocheted, although there is an option in the pattern to knit it if you’d prefer.  I like the crochet loops a lot, and the buttons themselves are really pretty.

Hopefully my future sister-in-law will like it — she asked for an orange scarf for Christmas so I took the liberty of choosing the pattern and buttons.  Most unfortunately I won’t be able to see her open her gift on Christmas morning this year, but I’ve already delivered it with a card so I know she’ll have it.

Well that’s all for today!  I’ve gotta go get ready for visiting my fiance’s dad’s family tomorrow and my own family on Christmas day — my nailpolish is all chipped and I need to wash my Christmas sweater.  See you soon!
