I made this neckwarmer for Marc on his request (I made him two neckwarmers before, but he wanted one that was tighter around his neck, so that is why I added the button closure and knitted it horizontal instead of vertical this time).




Tutorial:
I used acrylic yarn on 4mm needles.
Knit 2 / pearl 2, over 60 stitches.
After 46 cm (18 inch) I switched colours.
In the 7th row of the second colour I made 4 button holes (by tying off 3 stitches, which I casted back on in the next row).
Added on 2 febr.: it is probably better to make your button holes only 2 stitches wide (I had to sew them in with sewing thread, when Marc noticed that they became too wide).
After 5,5 cm (2.16 inch) of the second colour I finished off.
Then I sewed four large buttons to the other end of the neckwarmer, appr. 1,5 cm (0.6 inch) from the edge.

I hope you like it.

Does Marc have a conspicuously long neck?
I was thinking about trying out your pattern - but with the four button width, it would cover right up to DH's nose I'm sure.

Really cool! It looks like those old-fashioned shoes with the buttons, only for the neck...spats?  Anyway, it looks very good on him!

Gheghe, Jane2, no, Marc has a normal neck. He wanted the top of his shoulders covered too and as you can see it isn't pulled up all the way to his nose (which would be possible).

Striker923, thank you!
You're right, it does look like spats.
