I made this neck warmer in one afternoon, with no counting. Hooray! It even ended up with half a Darth Vader collar that I like, and made a couple dents in my crafting stash. Time for heroic poses in the bathroom mirror.
It looks like this on its own, if you want to make something similar.
This pattern is such a non-pattern that I insist on writing it formally, because it is funny.
- 100g (60m) of thick and thin wool
- 12mm needles
- 2 buttons and thread
CO 22 sts.
Work in garter stitch, decreasing one at each end of random rows (approximately every 4-6 rows), down to 2 sts. K2tog.
Pull yarn through remaining stitch and leave the tail hanging out as a fastener.
Weave in the cast on end.
Sew or tie the two buttons together to make a cuff-link type thing. Button it into the outside layer of the scarf and wrap the tail around it to fasten. (Move or flip the button at will.)
All the ingredients have stories. Past projects, hand-me-downs, gifts, inheritances. That feels good.
