My customers are living this pattern using two balls of Juniper Moon Farms Chadwick or one ball and a variegated ball of wool (Pure from Skacel).

CO 20sts using a US 10-11 and long tail cast on. Purl one row. Repeat the following four rows to desired length.

1) k2, *yarn forward (yf), sl1, yarn back (yb), k1; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
2) k2, p to last 2 sts, k2.
3) k2, *k1, yf, sl1, yb; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2.
4) k2, p to last 2 sts, k2.

If you put a button hole in 6 inches from the beginning then a 36 inch scarf is long enough and you can get at three small scarves from your investment!

Buttonhole:
rightside row: k2, work 6 sts in patttern, k2tog, yo x 2, SSK, work 6 sts in pattern, k2.

wrong side row: k2, p6, k1 in first loop of double yo, p1 in 2nd loop of yo, p6, k2.

buttonhole complete. find great button for other end of scarf!!! Go Giants!!!!

love, mary ellen
