Happy Valentine’s Day 2012 from Mary Keenan Knits!
I designed this pattern to use up my crazy beginner handspun, but it will work with any yarn really; the pattern includes advice on how to adapt the stitch for different weights. You could even make one to use up scraps!
The end product is a reversible strip of buttonholes with a very large (1.75” for bulky yarn) button on either end. Wear it snug, loose, or twisted - it’s all great! and so are you :^)
