    Your instructions for the Knitted Neck Warmer only shows one buttonhole row. Shouldn’t there be two? Wouldn’t it need to be repeated toward the end? Help! 🙂
    Thank you.

      The instructions are correct. the button holes are made —one at the beginning and one at the end —- of the “buttonhole row”

        Ah….now I see. Thank you so much for the quick response. I LOVE this neck warmer and will likely be making more than one for friends this holiday season.

          You’re very welcome! Remember too you can position the buttons anywhere you want the fit to be. Either straight like the image here or slanted like the Dallas Grey neck warmer I did using Lion Brand chunky acrylic yarn

          I an going to add pics to this post now do you can see what I mean.

    I Love this pattern. Thank you.

    At the beginning you say you used Loops and Threads Cozy wool with #8 needles but the yarn calls for #13. Later on you say you used Lion Brand Hometown. You gave no width for the
    finished scarf. I have used Moda Dea Cache and #10.5 needles and it looks to be about 5″ wide.

    • marni says:

      Hi Mary! You are correct, the yarn calls for size 13 needles, but I swear I used 8! I even checked just for you to make sure I wasn’t crazy. I have updated the pattern here, to say that I used smaller needles but you certainly don’t have to. I wanted a tighter knit. As long as you are happy with the width with the yarn and needles you have I say you should continue. After blocking my width was more like 8 inches. But when you wear the neckwarmer for a while it will change shape as it conforms to your neck.

    In the buttonhole row I have lost a stitch, is that correct?

  5. Suzan Winch says:

    I too am having problems with the buttonhole row….where is the “make a stitch” in the next row? I wld like your help with this because I love this scarf:-)

    • marni says:

      Hi Suzan! I apologize if I wasn’t clear in my instructions. After you complete the button hole row with the Yarn Overs (YO) you would then work those in the next row as a stitch. The YO creates the hole, and then you pick it up work it in the next row. Hope this helps!

      • Suzan Winch says:

        Hi Marni, thank you for your reply. It turns out that I wasn’t wrapping the yarn TWICE around the needle when it came to PURL 2tog thinking that once was enough:-)

    I’m a beginner. Where it has buttonhole row after the 4 rows is that sentence for 1 button hole? Also, where do I put the second button hole just ehere ever I want it.? Aft e r I put the first button hole do I continue to end with the pattern row. Also, what d oes it mean to last 7 stitches as more knitting is after that comment? Greatly appreciate

    • marni says:

      Hi Karen, I hope it’s not too late to reply! The button hole row is worked after the first 4 rows of the pattern:
      To begin, work 4 rows of Pattern Row
      Button hole row (work once): K2, YO, P2 tog (K2, P2) across to last 7 sts, K2, P1, P2 tog, YO, K1, P1
      Continue to work Pattern Row until piece measures 22″ or until neck warmer is the desired length. For me this was about 28″.
      Where you decide to put the buttons is up to you. Either along the edge, matching the distance of the holes, or diagonally. Try the neck warmer on and see how you want it to close. Then match the buttonholes to the places on the neck warmer you want the buttons to go.

    I don’t know how to knit with needles. Can you make instructions to loom knit?

  8. Alicia says:

    Love this! very easy to follow instructions! Just a quick question- did you sew the buttons on with wool? or thread? Not sure which will be stronger and last longer- plus not sure the wool will pass through the holes of the button?
    Thanks, in advance

    • marni says:

      Hi Alicia!
      Thank you! I actually used wool, but after 2 years one of my buttons fell off. It might be a better idea to use thread. You could also add wool on top to cover it up, just for looks.

    Do you knit the knits and lurk the lurks or just repeat the pattern each row?

    • marni says:

      Hi Tara, I hope it’s not to late to reply to your questions – if you haven’t figured it out by now, you repeat the pattern each row, you don’t knit knits and purl purls 🙂 Just do the same stitches back and forth. Thanks! Marni
