I love cowls. They are one of my favorite accessories to wear. My favorite part is that they are a loop - making it hard to fall off/lose. Sock-Yarn Accessories has a couple of cowl patterns in it that I think you will love as much as I do.
There's Pleasantville, a lace cowl with some nice texture within the lace.
Then there's Larkspur, the cowl I've been thinking about forever:
I picked up the buttons from My Garage Art. They are just so pretty! I need to make more things with buttons so I can get more.
Hooray for cowls!
