So my scarf has turned into a collar, of sorts. I got it to the point where it would wrap around my neck with a little overlap, and decided that I had already made one scarf, this would be perfect. I decided to make it button to one side.
I didn't realize that this was folly until I started making the buttonhole and realized I had no idea how to make a buttonhole. This was a problem.
So I punted. In the middle of the cable twining (the plain space in the center, that is), instead of hdc 4, I chained 4 and worked from there. The cables obscure the edges a touch, but I'm not overly concerned with it - I figure that should help it be more snug.
The challenge now is finding a button that'll fit that I like. Those two things aren't always the same. I'll post pics when it's done and a button has been found and affixed. Woo!
