Button Collar Scarf Pattern

I made a wonderful trade with micandme from Ravelry and obtained some beautiful homespun wool yarns. I've been busy as a beaver knitting it up into Christmas gifts, and I made one up for myself! I had a small skein of super bulky in gray that was so soft I couldn't resist it.  But there was only 35 yards. What to do?!
Here are my results.

Button Collar Scarf - Pattern

Super Bulky Yarn - 35 yards
size 7.5 mm knitting needles
1 large button
contrasting scrap yarn to make tassels

Cast on 10 stitches
Stocking stitch for # of inches to fit around neck loosely  + 1/2 inch ending with a purl row.
Knit 4, yo, knit two together, knit to end
Do 2 more rows of stocking stitch and cast off.

With a contrasting yarn, make tassels and sew them across the end with the button hole and 3 inches across the bottom of the scarf. (the button hole should be on the top half of the scarf)
Block  scarf to stop the edges from rolling
Sew on a large button to match up with the button hole

(These tassels were made by looping on long pieces of home spun yarn through the weave of the knitting and unraveling them)


  1. I love it. Haven't worked with bulky but love the look and colors you used..
