A new and most unique design from Catie.

She writes:

"This gorgeous cowl is knit in a woven (and reversible) cable pattern with a border of sparkling beads. It's made in a flat strip, then you have the option of making your own crocheted beaded buttons or using purchased buttons. Flip it over as you wish for a versatile and fashionable accessory."

For her original, Catie used 200 yards of a DK weight yarn, and 550 beads for the cowl (96 extra if you plan to make your own buttons). [The beads in the original were simply round size 6/0s. You can use any that will fit your yarn.]

You will want to use size 7 (US) needles or whatever size will give you a gauge in stockinette of 20 stitches/26 rows to 4"

The finished size here was 4 1/2" x 28".

The first photo to the upper right here shows the piece "flipped" over once, to make a fancy moebius.

The first one below shows it flipped over twice or more for a twisted neckpiece.

And the last picture below has it turned around to show off the buttons.

Easy and quite versatile indeed!
