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.

One of the most beautiful neckwarmer I have seen. I am going to copy for one of my daughters. Congratulations and thank you again
Hi! I am new at this. Just learning to knit, and I am curious how you sewed on the button. Or, if you know a good tutorial.
Do I use the same yarn or something different? Any advice would help. That’s the final touch on my project, and it turned out pretty good. Thanks for the pattern and details!
I just sewed the button on with heavy duty thread and tried to go through different parts of the knit stitches to make the button less floppy. Good luck on your knitting!
Thank you. I appreciate it! 🙂
