After civilization falls and Monday morning staff meetings are a thing of the past, survivors will still need a way to keep track of the passage of time. Lunar Progression is a large cozy scarf/stole with a built in lunar calendar! At one end is a circle set into a diamond with buttons at the four corners that mark the four quarters of the lunar cycle. The pointer moves freely on its button pivot point. A button is moved along the length of the pointer to tick off the seven days of each quarter. On the other end of the scarf is another circle with a pointer and 13 buttons around its perimeter to mark the 13 lunar cycles in a year. The main body of the scarf has a lace ribbing pattern and tapers slightly from the diamond end to the circle end. There is a slit at the top point of the diamond that allows the other end to be threaded through to secure the scarf around the wearer.

This pattern is in the book Doomsday Knits, which is currently available at cooperativepress.com, as well as here on Ravelry.
