I have managed to create a number of cowls over the last year. With a beautiful yarn by Mountain Goat (mohair & wool) yearning to be made into something other than a cowl, I whipped up this gorgeous wrap, Flicking Flames. I played around with different edges until I found one I liked which could do double time as a buttonhole as well. The pattern is fairly easy so I happily knitted along until I had only enough left for the final edging and bind off. Whew! I honestly only had a few inches left of this yarn. Sadly, the picture is not doing any justice to the warm reds with flecks of gold and light brown (colorway Harmony Sunset). Sits comfortably on my shoulders near my neck. I love it!!!!
