"button, button...who's got the button?!"

i really liked this stitch pattern that i found in "knitting for dummies." it's call the 'double basket weave.' i had intended to make a scarf, but it's february and after many long months of ohio winter scarves are starting to get on my nerves. so, i decided to do a neckwarmer. i will be doing either mittens or gloves next, neither of which i've ever made before (any suggested patterns for beginners??), but i'm excited.

here you go:


please excuse the redness around my eyes...my skin gets super dry in the winter - even if i'm not out long - and it gets very red and raw. Embarrassed

a close up of the basket weave pattern and my cool buttons:


a close up of the buttonholes, of which i'm extrememly proud...these are my first! i followed the video tutorial on www.knittinghelp.co m 

i really like how i placed them in such a way that they don't really disrupt the pattern, it continues "through" them, if that makes sense.

a question: what do you think of the buttons? i was going to do black or brown buttons, but i wanted something a little funky. the husband votes yes on them.

any questions/comments/criticism welcome!

Just like you, I fell in love with this stitch as soon as I saw it.  I've been working on a scarf with this stitch but now that I've seen your neckwarmer I may stop short and do one too.  I love your buttons and you sure look comfy warm in your creation!

How strange. I've never seen your neckwarmer before and yet we somewhere along the way got the same idea! Hehe

I made a neckwarmer almost exactly like yours. Same basket weave (I did not know the to it, I just knit it Tongue), same colour yarn and  same colour buttons Tongue there is just nothing like turquoise and orange together!

Nice proportional colour combo!
