To Block:

If using Acrylic or other synthetic yarn, pin item out to finished measurements on an ironing board. Hold a steaming iron or garment steamer 2”-3” over the surface of the knitting, moving the iron / steamer around so all the knitted fabric is steamed. Allow to cool and dry.

OR

If using natural fiber yarn, pin item out to finished measurements on foam blocking mats. Spray with water until the knitted fabric is damp all over. Allow to dry.

 

Thread the thinner yarn scrap through the eye of your thinner yarn needle. (If using sewing needle, thread it with a length of your sewing thread.)

Place the button at the center of the cast-on edge of the cowl, and move it in about 1 ½” from that edge.

Sew the button to the cowl in that position, and secure with a knot. “Weave in” the yarn / thread tail.
