Evolution: A Cowl. A quick knit in a bulky yarn, this is sure to become a favorite for yourself and for quick gifts for friends and family.
Pattern level is intermediate: It features left and right leaning increases (lli and lri or LLinc and LRinc, depending on where you learned them) and buttonholes. Pattern is knit flat.
Fabric is reversible. This can be converted into a scarf by leaving off the buttonholes and knitting in pattern until the desired length is reached.
You may sell objects knit from this pattern at craft fairs, bazaars and the like.
