"Nine to Five" Convertible Cowl

*** now published in***

This is a pattern I wrote several months back for a One Skein workshop at Lovin' Knit. After working up this cowl in a gray silk/wool blend (Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool), I thought it was just the right accessory to wear with business attire. So, I created the button tab, for a "buttoned down" look and then the flower to add a softer side.

 So, since it is a really quick project, the math is this: 1 skein + 2 hours = 3 way cowl.


  1. Love this. I have googled this yarn and cannot find it in a 65% wool to 35% silk blend. All I seem to find has a 20% nylon added to it. Where can I buy the wool/silk blend. I want to make this and add my own polymer clay buttons to it.

    This is a beautiful piece.

    Thank you.

  2. Silky Wool by Elsebeth Lavold has changed to include a nylon component . . . this should not make any noticeable change to the cowl. In fact, it is likely the yarn I used had the nylon as well - they had just not changed the banding on the skein yet.
