So, what do you give the girl who was your 6th grade best friend when you find out she's quit stripping and joined the navy?
A neckwarmer in fuzzy hot pink! with glamorous tassles! and a mohair flower!

What a beautiful neckwarmer and flower! I can't remember seeing tassels on flowers before.

I hope she was pleased. Might be the last bit of non-khaki apparel she's going to see for a while.

If we promise not to join the navy, could we see a pattern for the neckwarmer, the mohair flower AND the tassels?

Ummm. Okay.

"Pattern"
Neckwarmer: Moda Dei, possibly Vixen, but whatever that eyelash with the tiny bobble-things is.
 I cast on 14-16 sts (i think) on 10 1/2 needles and worked in a basketweave pattern until it was neck- sized. Do a yarnover somewhere in the middle to make a buttonhole. Knit about 2 more inches. Cast off.

Flower:  Divine in bright orange. Yay.
Crochet, size k/10 hook- Ch 6, connect with slip stitch. (Make sure your button can fit through this hole!)Ch 2, *sc into center loop, ch1, dc into center loop, ch 1* repeat to make 5 petals. Attach 5th petal to 1st petal with a slip stitch.

Sew flower to buttonhole. The button will go through the ceter of the flower. Bring the hanging tails of the flower to the back, and any tail left from the cast-off. Attach any other fringe-y bits (more yarn, long chains of plain yarn, chains with beads, strings of little beads, whatever). Hide the knots under the flower. This is the complicated side, and all of the glamour stuff goes here.

Sew a button to the appropriate spot on the other side. Make sure it fits through the flower's center. If not, uh..find another button.

Ta-da!
