Since you have all been really good I decided to share a little knitting tutorial that I whipped up, with you. It is very easy, all you need to know how to do is knit, purl, cast on and cast off. 


Materials needed - 
  • Size 13 needle
  • 1 skein Bernat Roving Yarn in Putty (or yarn of same weight in any color you want)
  • A cute button
  • Tapestry needle

Pattern is multiples of 3 +1 
RS - right side 
WS - wrong side 
K - knit 
P - purl 
YO - yarn over

CO 25 stitches (or desired width in multiples of 3+1)
(RS)Row 1 * K1, P2 * repeat ** 7 more times or until desired width, K1 
(WS)Row 2 * P1, K2 * repeat ** 7 more times or until desired width, P1
Repeat rows 1 and 2 for 2 inches. On next row add a button hole. For mine I cast off two sitches starting on the fourth stitch in the row and then continued the row as normal. On the following row, I cast on two when I came to the button hole. You can also make a button hole by using a YO. It depends on what button you want. (my button hole was a little big, so you may just want to do a YO)
Continue repeating rows 1 and 2 until desired length. The one pictured is 31 inches long.
Cast off in pattern on RS.
Add button. For placement I suggest wrapping the scarf around your neck and finding where is most comfortable. On the one shown it is 21 inches from the cast on edge and place on the opposite edge of the scarf on the RS.
Weave in ends.
Block if you want. Since the yarn I used is mainly acrylic I am just letting it do it’s curly thing!
