EZ Ribwarmer


Although I finished this ribwarmer in June, I waited to post it until after Knitting Camp! I used J&S chunky along with croceted hairties for the ties and buttons I discovered on a vacation to Austin, TX. To finish the ribwarmer I I-Corded around all edges.

  • Hi Peggy: Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    The rib warmer is beautiful. I must say that the buttons add polish and style to is as well. That is a garment I would wear with pride!

  • I agree that the buttons add a touch of class...it looks like something from a "high-end" boutique...less rustic.

  • Very classy. How much yarn did it take?

  • To Elysbeth -- It took 600 yards --five 120 yd. skeins. Color #64 of Jamieson and Smith 2 ply Soft-Spun, to be exact!

    Thanks for the compliments on the buttons! Sometimes it really helps just to buy buttons because they 'speak', rather than for something specific!
