Just in time for Christmas, it’s finished!
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!
