Laura Cowl and giveaway!

First off, congrats to Molly, the winner of the Laura Cowl pattern! The pdf will be on its way to your inbox shortly :)

Speaking of the pdf, every knitter can now get his or her own copy for just $2 via my Ravelry pattern shop or in the Perknitious Etsy shop.

Here are a few more of the pattern specs:

An original Perknitious design, this close-fitting, cabled cowl knits up quickly in your favorite shade of super bulky yarn on size 15 (10 mm) needles. Three buttons (or more, if you choose) allow a number of variations for closing and wearing the cowl, from single-buttoned shoulder warmer to three-buttoned slouchy cowl. It is named in honor of some of my fabulous Laura-friends, but it would make a nice gift for any of your loved ones, or for yourself! 
The pattern download is a 3-page pdf file with color pictures, and provides both written instructions and a chart for your convenience.
Skills required - 
knit, purl, cable, single crochet, sewing on buttons
Materials needed - 
Yarn: 1 skein (108 yards / 98 meters) Lion Brand Wool-Ease, Thick & Quick, or your favorite super bulky weight yarn 
Needles: US 15 (10mm) knitting needles, straights or circular 
Cable needle 
Crochet hook, size J or larger for finishing 
Notions: Embroidery floss in a color of your choice (match or contrast!) 
3 buttons, approx. 1 inch in diameter (you can use more buttons if you like) 
Yarn needle 

Many many thanks to the lovely Laura L., who kindly agreed to model her namesake cowl for a little photoshoot yesterday. Isn't she just too stinkin' cute?
Happy Friday!
