November 16, 2008 at 4:50 pm 4 comments



  • 1 hank Araucania Magallanes (242 yds/hank; about ½ hank) Or roughly 100-120 yds your choice yarn
  • US 9 (circular or straight) needles (or size indicated on your ball band)
  • 2 buttons of your choice

Gauge should be somewhere around 5sts and 5 rows/inch in pattern stitch, but it is not crucial for this project.

CO 23.

Begin pattern stitch:

Row 1 (RS): Sl 1, k2 [sl 1 as if to knit, k3] to end
Row 2 (WS): Sl 1, k2 [p1 through front loop (stitch will be twisted!), k 3] to end

Repeat Rows 1 and 2 until piece measures 20-21 inches. End with WS row.

Work buttonholes:
RS: Sl 1, k1, bo 1, [sl 1, k3] 4 times, sl 1, k1, bo 1, k1
WS: Sl 1, k1, co 1, [p1 through front loop, k 3] 4 times, p 1 through front loop, k1, co 1, k1

RS: Sl 1, k 2 [sl 1, k3] to end
WS: Sl 1, k 2 [p1 through front loop, k3] to end
RS: Bind off all stitches.

Attach buttons so they align with buttonholes.

Block if desired, and WEAR WITH PRIDE.

    GO YOU! And your first pattern. I signed up as a volunteer editor for your pattern and approved it, by the way. And added my version of yours as a project so you already have one project under your pattern. I’m super proud of you. ❤

    Happpy Holidays & thanks for your great Aubergine pattern…
    (One of my late Xmas gifts)

    Have just one question – What is meant by purling
    thru the front loop? I always purl thru the front of
    the stitch to purl. Do you mean “purl thru the
    loop below the stitch”?

    Thanks again,

      On the previous row (RS), insert the right needle into the stitch as if you were going to knit it. This will twist it.

      On the WS row you’re asking about, purl through the front loop like usual. Because the stitch was slipped that certain way, it will remain twisted (making it stand out) as long as you purl like normal.

      I’m sorry if that made it even more confusing! You can email me if you need more clarification.
