Pretty Cowl

Love this yarn - it's some sort of hand-painted bulky wool that I bought up in Tahoe last year. I made up a simple cowl with a simple pattern of increasing-height rows - starting with a single crochet row, then double, etc. up to a double-treble and then back down. It's pretty wide, so I folded it in half (which adds some warmth since double-treble stitches are pretty open), sewed a button onto one end, and voila: a pretty splash of color.
