I cast on with some Cascade 220 Aran that was leftover from my Ramona cardigan and had the project finished pretty quickly, which is always a nice feeling. I really like this yarn for cowls, as it's soft and squishy - I think it would be fabulous for beanies too! Apart from the lovely lace design, what really appealed to me about this cowl, was the button closure. I chose some chunky wooden ones, which isn't really a surprise, as I seem to use wooden buttons for all of my projects.
The pattern is called 'Gothic Rose Cowl' and I've popped a few more photos on my Ravelry page, plus all the finer details, if you'd like to take a peek:
