I’ve had a few requests for a more formal pattern for the neck warmer, but I don’t have time for a “real” pattern so I’ll share my notes.
I used Lamb’s Pride in color m10 “Creme” and 3.75mm needles (us 5).
108113 stitches were cast on, and there are 2 garter stitches at either end. I don’t have my neck warmer handy today, but it’s probably about 5.5 sts to the inch.
On the 6th row, I made an eyelet buttonhole 4 stitches from the edge (yo, k2tog or p2tog, depending on the pattern). I knit into this yarnover on the return row *but*, knit into the yarnover again (and the stitch above it) on the next right side row in order to enlarge the buttonhole.
The buttonholes were repeated every 10th row 3 times more. I worked a further 6 rows and bound off using the stem stitch method. The buttons are vintage and made of leather – they’re about 1/2″ in diameter. The buttonholes are a little tight, but I usually slip it over my head anyhow.
Time to get back to work on the website… stay tuned for a re-design!
