So, I finished this a while ago but I've been trying to take photos of it. It's very comfy and fluffy, but... I don't look good in it. But it's comfy! And actually, it wasn't that horrible to knit with, either. I would work with this yarn again, maybe to make a fluffy stuffed monster. It makes a great fabric.
Anyway, it's a flexible cowl because I knit it on larger needles, and the buttons fit through the stitches instead of any set button holes. So you can button it any way you want. I found four:
I guess if you wanted to add a fifth style you could twist it and make it a mobius cowl. I'm sure there are more!
So, I packaged it up and will send it off when I get around to the post store... hopefully tomorrow. I feel like I have had no time to myself lately. It was very calming to sew up the package on my sewing machine.
