Buttoned Alpaca Cowl Crochet Pattern

Crafted from luxurious alpaca yarn, this Espiral Buttoned Alpaca Cowl makes for a delightful crochet project, both simple and speedy to complete. The charming primrose pattern forms the main body of this neck warmer, while a customized fan stitch adorns the edges, lending a feminine touch.


Featuring complimentary workable buttons, this cowl/neck warmer ensures effortless wearability.

The alpaca yarn chosen is from the Espiral yarn line and the color above (and below) is called Cusco.  It’s a worsted weight yarn and is spun from 100% alpaca.  Working with this yarn is an absolute joy, it is so irresistibly soft and lovely.

Cusco is an array of natural colors, brown, tan, cream, black, gray, and white.  It has the look of a random handspun skein of yarn.
