This is from the latest Knitty, it's a cowl which can double as a hat if you need it. LOVE the knit and the F.O.! On Ravelry here.
I wanted something to give to mom if she decides to take her trip to Paris on her 80th birthday ....but I'm the one modeling because it's a surprise and she's my photographer :o)
The buttons are vintage from a dress of hers from the 50's and will undoubtedly make her like the F.O.
If you make this make sure to block the heck out of it top to bottom or it might not fit your head, if you have a large one like me.
