Keep It Cosy is a little buttoned wrap; just glorious to drape around your neck. 100g of yarn – two contrasting colours makes this simple yet effective classy little brioche project pop. The cross-over style gives an interesting shape. You’ll end up with a small rectangle; the placing of the buttons creates the asymmetrical effect.
