So after a girl in my English 101 class asking me to make her a scarf and being inspired from all the cables I've seen around I decided to make this scarf for her!

It's made with LionsBrand Wool-ease on size 11 needles. I like this yarn since it's washable and I live in Seattle. Lots of rain. And the girl always wears P-coats so I thought the buttonhole scarf would be a good idea. Didn't take long at all! And it's my own pattern. I'll write it up if people want it. Smiley

comments? critique? Smiley

EDIT: Thanks for all of your nice comments! Here's the pattern!

I used 2 balls of Wool-ease from LionsBrand (I only used half of the scond ball) on size 11 needles, but you can use whatever you want and just add a cable and rib more or less as you please so it's the size, gauge and lenght that you want! Smiley

CO 24 with cable cast on.
Row1: p3, k2, p4, k2, p2, k2, p4, k2, p2 and sl 1 st knitwise.
Row2: k3, p2, k4, p2, k2, p2, k4, p2, k2 and sl 1 st purlwise.
Row3: p3, k2, p4, k2, p2, k2, p4, k2, p2, and sl 1 st knitwise.
Row4: k3, p2, c2f, p2, k2, p2, c2f, p2, k2 and sl 1 st purlwise.

Continue rows 1-4 until you have reached desired lenght and position for button hole. Then knit first half of stitches and place the other half of stitch holder. repeat rows 1-4 on the half of the scarf on your needles (making sure to only slip a stitch on the actual outside edge of scarf and not on side facing hole)until buttonhole is wide enough to fit scarf snugly but not tightly. break yarn. pick up the stitches on stitch holder and reattach yarn. repeat rows 1-4 until both sides are equal in lenght. Once you have equal lenght, continue across entire row and repeat rows 1-4 until edisired lenght is reached and finally ending on row 3. BO.

It's really simple, and quick. Definitely a weekender and good for cable practice.

Love the design!  Congrats on the seamlessness of the keyhole with the cable.  I would love it if you wrote it down and shared. 

And double congrats on your first FO in ages.  At the moment I can't seem to finish a single project so I understand the kind of determination you sometimes need to finish.

Ooohh, I would like a pattern too.
That is gorgeous!

I've been hanging off on knitting the Irish Hiking scarf because I thought it needed something that wasn't there.
A scarf with a keyhole - and cables - does it!

I love the button hole aspect of the scarf the most!

Nice scarf. The color and texture are great, and the keyhole is an awesome addition.
