This seed stitch buttoned cowl is a super quick and easy way to use about 100 yards of chunky-weight alpaca yarn. I used exactly 1 skein of Frog Tree Alpaca’s Chunky Alpaca yarn but other options are Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky, Misti Alpaca Chunky, or Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande (1 skein of any of these).
