-Tapestry needle

-1 inch button

-Needle and thread to secure button


4 stitches per inch in pattern


Make longer by knitting more length before the decreases. To make wider add an extra stitch at beginning and end.

Yarn: for the pattern to show up a fairly smooth yarn is best, thick and thin handspun yarns may not show the pattern very well. Be sure to use a yarn that you can wear next to the skin if you are going to wear this!
