The Lemon Balm Button Cowl is a pretty and easy to crochet neck wrap. Its simple construction of double crochet stitches is finished off with a scalloped edge. A special single button is all you need to keep it together.
The cowl's construction was inspired by my Ocean Air Scarf pattern. If you love to button your cowl or scarf up, be sure to try these patterns too by clicking on the link:
