I just wanted to share with you all this cute fast project I finished in an evening.  I think I may be making a bunch of these for holiday gifts. 


The pattern is from Knit.1 fall 2007.  I made it with Brown Sheep Burly Spun.  I have enough left over from 1 skein to make another for sure.

Here it is blocking.



I wasnt' sure that I like the red buttons, but there's just something about the colour combo - festive and funky.

I saw you use a brioche stitch on another scarf today and I thought.. well i cant do THAT.. But this? Yes.. I can do this!  I like the cable stitch!  I just have to find my needles now.. I lost my knitting needles in my apartment!  grr.. so frustrating..
  Great Scarf!

Thanks for the compliments.  The brioche stitch scarf was by redthread.  I don't do brioche either so we're on the same page there...lol.

How were the buttonholes made?

The buttonholes were done by casting off two stitches (per buttonhole) on one row and then doing a cable cast on for the two stitches on the following row. 

Make sense?
