* • • • • • Dulce Neck Cozy • • • • • *NOTE: Scarflette worked with 2 strands DK weight yarn held together.
YARN: 2 skeins Rowan Tapestry in Whirlpool (DK weight. About 262 yds total)
NEEDLES: Size 11 (I didn't bother with gauge. Shame on me, I know)
EXTRAS: 2 buttons measuring 1" diameter (I used handmade buttons from Briar Rose Fibers)
(note: edited to add 3 garter stitches to edges)
Cast on 30 sts (or other even number)
Row 1 (RS): k4, [slip 1, k1, yarn over, pass slipped stitch over knit stitch and yarn over] repeat to last 4 sts, k4
Row 2 (WS): k3, purl to last 3 sts, k3
Repeat these two rows until you have worked 2"
Button hole rows:
(RS) k4, work pattern 2x, bind off 2 stitches, k1, work pattern 4x, bind off 2 stitches, k1, finish row in pattern to last 4 sts, k4.
(WS) k3, purl to bound off stitches, cast on 2, purl to next button hole, cast on 2, purl across to last 3 sts, k3.
Continue working rows 1 & 2 until piece measures desired length.
Sew on the buttons, weave in the ends, and you're good to go!
