FO: Herringone Neckwarmer
There's a cute (free) herringbone scarf pattern I spotted it at Raverly. It inspired me to use up one skein of Cascade Yarns Baby Alpaca Chunky that I impulsively purchased at my LYS a couple of years ago.
(the 108 yd hank = 5.5" x 25" flat)

BTW: the herringbone pattern stitch is easy as pie. Try it!

My Plan B buttonloops, shown below. I couldn't figure out how to make
K2tog/YO buttonholes in this the middle of this herringbone stitch. Gah!

The perfect end for an impulse buy! It's lovely and the buttonholes look natural and (most importantly) function just fine.

Whenever I make button-up neckwarmers, I usually crochet a row of single crochets and loops onto the end of the scarf. Works great.

Lovely and warm, warm and lovely. Very pretty. That's a very comfortable color, works well for the neck warmer. :thumbsup:

I like this a lot. It is a nice change from wearing scarves. You did a fabo job as always.

Beautiful! Color, pattern, buttonhole solution, the whole 108 yards. Love this pattern stitch.

Beautiful!! I like the buttonholes like that rather than in the knitting. His way it doesn't interrupt the beautiful pattern!

Just beautiful! I searched every store I could think of at Christmas, trying to find a scarf or neckwarmer for my dil - my son had told me she'd love one with some buttons, or something "different" to give it some style. I found nothing. Yours is perfect - elegant and practical, plus cozy. They live in a ... let's say..."cooler" area of our Province, lol, and she's a knitter, so I'd like to give her the link. I guess that's ok? She should join KH and Ravelry anyway! Thanks for posting!!

So many lovely things people are knitting, one day I'll make something more than a pair of socks!! Like this for instance, could use a neck warmer today in SE Michigan!
