This pattern is great for a quick last minute knitted gift. After making the feminine promenade neck warmer, I decided I wanted to make a more masculine version and thought this brown handspun would look nice knit up in moss stitch.
Yarn: I used a worsted to aran weight handspun, about 50g
Alternative yarns: I think this would look nice in a noro yarn, but kuyeron or silk garden would be closest in weight to what I used . However, any yarn you fancy would work, just use appropriate needles to match the gauge.
Needles: US 9 (5.5 mm)
Gauge: 4 stitches/inch
Size: one size fits most
CO 98 stitches
Knit in moss stitch (k,p to the end on both odd and even rows) for 28 rows.
On row 7 and 21 make an appropriate sized buttonhole 3 stitches from the end.
I used this buttonhole tutorial and castoff 3 stitches to match the button size I used.
Bind off loosely, sew on buttons (using the pic above as a guide), and you're done!
If you have any problems or questions with this pattern please let me know so that I can fix it!
