- You can make your cowl longer by just repeating row 3 however many times you’d like. Keep in mind that this cowl is designed to use just one skein but you can definitely use more than one and increase its length.
Row 1: Fsc 17
Row 2: Ch1, petite shell in the same st, [sk1 st, petite shell in the next st] 8x, turn. <9 petite shells>
Row 3: Ch1, sl st in the sc, [petite shell in ea ch-2 sp] 9x, turn. <9 petite shells>

Row 46: ch1, sl st in the sc, 2 sc in ea ch-2 sp across skipping the sc’s. <18 sc>
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Add buttons wherever you want to allow for styling your neck warmer to your liking. I added my buttons at each corner between rows 2 & 3.
Want to join your cowl to make it one piece? Not a problem.
To join cowl, bring both ends (row 1 and row 46) together – making sure that stitches are lines up (bonus tip, use clasping stitch markers to hold both ends together), and using your favorite seaming method, I like the mattress st since it’s very secure, seam both ends together. Fasten off and weave in ends.
