My husband gave me a long multicolored rib-knit scarf ten years ago. It has been my go-to accessory ever since: I adore its graphic use of squares and friendly colors. I have always wanted to replicate it, but never wanted to deal with the myriad ends that would need to be hidden.
Inspired by that favorite scarf and my love of magic loop knitting, I have resolved a method for a double thick cozy buttoned scarf. With no ends to weave in.

On Sunday morning, January 18, I will be teaching this method of quilted patchwork at the Trad Arts Studio, located at the Slater Mill in Pawtucket, RI.
By working in the round, we can cruise along with good ole stockinette stitch and produce double thick fabric. We will learn a transition from a single thickness fabric to double thickness, and back again. We can consume all those bits and bobs of left over yarn, you know the kind: Too short for another project, too long to throw away.
Check out the offerings for the weekend -- I am delighted to be a part of a gathering of stellar knitters.
