Looking to make a scarf, cowl, or wrap? This design looks like a regular scarf, but with a button closure at the ends it can be worn so many ways. Worked with two coordinating colors of variegated yarn in a ripple pattern, you'll never get bored with this project.

The "V" at the bottom of the top reminded me a princess dress, (Princess-Priscilla....sounds similar) It can be made in any size, any yarn weight. I used only two skeins of Red Heart Unforgettable yarn for the sample. Every time you put a new color tank top underneath you have a different look! You can even wear it as a vest over a shirt for an office look. Endless possibilities!
