Pattern notes
By lengthening a typical swatch to 12 repeats per segment, adding buttonholes at one end and buttons along the selvedge, the piece becomes a neck wrap. Three bargello segments of 9 repeats create the headband which is finished with a faux button closure. Each fingerless mitt is a mini-swatch joined with a linked seam to create the hand section seamlessly in the round.
