Hi
I am wanting to knit a  neckbuff for my friend's birthday (in less than 3 weeks).

I have found this simple pattern for http://whorledpeacehandspun.blogspot.com/2008/02/buff-by-whorled-peace-www.html on the Whorled Peace website, but it is for a bulky yarn - the yarn I want to 'stashbust' is Colinette One Zero, so it is thinner. I could double the yarn up but does anyone know how else I could 'make it fit' ie use smaller needles,more stitches etc?

Or, does anyone know of an alternative pattern using finer yarn?

Thanks

shona

At the gauge given, it'll be about 20" around. So figure how many sts/inch you get with your yarn and needles you like, and multiply times 20. That's your cast on number and then you just knit for 12". You may want to make it an inch or so larger - the thicker yarn and bigger needles for Buff allow it to stretch more.
