another place to look is ravelry, I made one called twirly girl, it was on circular needles. The hardest part was the 3" of increases to form a wavy edge because you ended up doubling your stitches and it took forever to do one round. other wise it was all plain knitting. Good luck and happy knitting. :thumbup: Kaju

I'm looking for a patterns for a Slotted Neck Scarf. Have one, but confused about the slot part. I got one side of the 3" slot made but not sure how to pick up stitches from second side without cutting the yarn.

Can you dig out the 'other end' of the yarn and use that to pick up the other stitches?

You will need to cut it, eventually.

I have a method for working upwards after a split in the work, usually when doing horizontal buttonholes on front facing which is picked up from the margin of the work.
Often, the instructions say to cast off 3 or 4 stitches and cast on in the next row. This leaves a hole that gapes.

To do a buttonhole, after say 6 stitches from the hemline, work those 6 stitches + the number of stitches to the next buttonhole (say, 8 more stitches).
Turn, knit to the place where the first buttonhole will be. Wrap the yarn around the right needle to match half the number of rows which will form the hole - say 2 or 3 times
*Next row: knit together the first stitch of the lowest buttonhole PLUS the first wrap, work to the 2nd buttonhole place, turn, work back to buttonhole space.*

Repeat from * to * until the lowest buttonhole is completed. By wrapping yarn around the right needle, and knitting the yarn together with the next stitch, this means that a split of whatever size is needed can be done without cutting the yarn, as in the slotted neck scarf.

If the holes are made in a buttonhole band, the turns should be repeated to the very end, with the latter part being worked to the same depth as the area without buttonholes.

All this might look complicated, but try it on just a short piece of work - say over 40 stitches with 2 buttonholes. The result is much nicer than the cast-off and cast-on method.

Nope. There is a simple technique here. I've just forgotten what it is. My browser doesn't allow me access to Ravelry.com but I can get KP. Thanks for your thorough description of buttonholes. The knit shop has slotted scarf pattern but not the same as the one I have. I tried emailing them but it's another website my browser doesn't allow me to get onto. I have to travel fifty miles for yarn.

Thank You. I live in Kansas City...guess
I didn't include that. If you have an easy pattern I would love to have it or may try the K4, P1....don't understand how to reverse for the wrong side.

There are other browsers out there. When I can't get Google to work on Firefox, I try Internet Explorer. Other browsers are Netscape Navigator, Flock and Opera.

Have you kept your browser updated?

When you say you cannot access Ravelry, have you just typed in the address or did you use a search engine such as Google.

With circular needles you go round and round. With 2 needles you knit one row, turn work around and purl back.

If you would like send me private message and I will send you the pattern from Ravelry.
