    Burnt out on sweaters? Knitted too many cables lately? Too much lace? Done too much colorwork? Spent too long on sleeve island? Working on/just finished a project that dragged on forever? Knit a man-sized sweater?

    This is the antidote - bulky yarn, garter stitch, a few short rows, a button, and a couple of hours gets you this fun little scarf/cowl. Find that pretty single skein of bulky hand-dye and that awesome button you picked up at the last festival and whip this up in no time!

    Skills used: short rows, buttonhole

    Note: If you’re using Madelinetosh A.S.A.P. and only have one skein, you may have to bind off one or two rows earlier to keep from running out of yarn. The sample used about a yard of a second skein.

    Finished measurements: approximately 63.5 cm long and 9-20.5 cm tall

    Gauge: 11 stitches and 22 rows to 10 cm in garter stitch

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
