This warm, gorgeous Fair Isle cowl is adorned with eight antique glass buttons. The buttons match segments of the green hand-dyed yarn used as an accent in the Fair Isle knitting design.

I bought these perfect-condition chartreuse floral buttons in Antique Row in Kensington, Maryland, where I was told they are 1930s Czech glass. It almost broke my heart to take them off their perfect "Latest Style Buttons" card, which you can see in one of the photos. They had been sewn onto the card with such care that each flower was facing the same direction.

All of the five different skeins of yarn used in the cowl are 100% wool. They have been softened with a gentle wash in Eucalan.

Length: 9".
Center circumference: 21" unstretched.
Garter stitch edge circumference: 24" unstretched.
The glass buttons are slightly smaller than dimes.
