Bulky and Warm Neck Wrap December 21, 2010

Materials: 2 Skeins Lion Brand Thick & Quick yarn, size 17 needles (if you know that your gauge is loose use a smaller needle like 13’s or 15’s), 1 tapestry needle, 1 extra large button.

Pattern: Cast on 17 stitches. ROW 1 and all rows: Slip the first stitch purlwise, k1,p1 across the row until 2 stitches are left, k1, k last stitch in the back of the stitch.  Knit this row until 33″ in length.

BUTTONHOLE ROW:  Work first 8 stitches of row in moss stitch pattern, cast off 2 stitches, work in pattern until the end of the row.  NEXT ROW:  Work until cast-off stitches, cast on 2 stitches, work until end of row.

Work for 2″ beyond the buttonhole, and then bind off loosely.  Weave in all loose ends, choose a cool button and sew it on.  On the green scarf, I sewed the button on so the ends overlap.  On the black scarf, I sewed the button on so the scarf ends meet at a 90 degree angle.  Enjoy this pattern!  It only takes a few hours to knit 🙂

I’ve just updated this pattern (Nov. 26, 2011) because I am knitting a few of these for my nieces for Christmas and I discovered that I didn’t have enough yarn with just one ball to finish the wrap.  So, I purchased a second ball.  I’m pretty sure that Lion Brand changed the yardage in the Wool-ease Thick & Quick yarn…in their favor.
