Apex is knitted in one piece like a scarf with buttonholes along the row end edges.
By working buttonholes on each end of the wrap the knitter can use the buttonholes on one side as a guide to placing the buttons. When sewing the buttons on, place them directly above the buttonholes and sew the holes shut. The button holes on the opposite side are left open.
The wrap is written for one size only, but by adding or subtracting any multiple of 10 sts and adjusting the number of repeats the width can be easily adjusted. The length can also be adjusted in a similar fashion by adding or subtracting repeats either side of the centre back.
