ok, then

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!

    Thanks for the recipe, Véronik! I really like the stitch pattern, it makes for a lovely neck warmer.

    Dear Readers-of-Veronik,

    The original chevron neck warmer was spotted out in public yesterday, and it is indeed very cute. Just thought I’d let you know.

    thanks for the chart! I’ve been churning out the scarflets this year, and I think I need one for myself in some white Malabrigo. When I get the gift knitting done, anyway…

    I started knitting this tonight and found you actually need to cast one 113 st. That’s 108 for the pattern, 1 for the extra stitch and 4 for the garter borders. It’s working up beautifully!

    Thanks for a great little pattern! Neckwarmers sometimes fidget me, but this one is irresistible.

    Oh my word I LOVE it! I saw your neck warmer post last week, and wanted to knit it sooo bad. I am a new self-taught knitter so need a lil more instructing. I decided I would comment asking you for the pattern. To my suprise you had already posted it :) Yes!!! I can’t wait to start it. THANK YOU!
