Is it a collar?
Nope…it’s what we in Wales would call a “Bethtingalw” – a “whatdyoucallit”.
Basically it’s a bit of simple knitting and a snazzy technique.
Chunky yarn – although you could use any yarn really, just work out your measurements.
A Large button.
Size 9mm needles.
Tension: 12sts x 8 rows in 10cm working in garter stitch.
Cast on 24 sts
Continue to garter stitch (knit on every row) until your work measures around
Button hole row: k7, k2tog, yf, k to end of row.
Knit 6 more rows.
Cast off 15 sts and fasten off and you are left with 9 live sts:

Place the scarfy-thing around your neck and decide where you want the button, add one and off you go!
