This is the second time I've knit this pattern. This time it is a little shorter and I only used one button - a vintage one. Here is the one I knit last year and all the pattern info. The nice thing about a neck warmer you don't have to pay much attention to gauge. I knit this one out of one skein of LLH GOA yarn. It is a heavier yarn 50% cotton and 50% acrylic. My neck is always cold so this is a nice little warm Winter piece.
