I am a relatively new knitter and for my first actual project, with designated yarn and new, specific needles and everything, I've decided on a scarf for my husband. It's pretty straightforward.
He would like a button or two though, with buttonholes, so that it can be buttoned right up around his neck, instead of tying it. Buttonholes in knitting intimidate me.
Would you all suggest this kind of addition on a first project? All I know is knit and purl and I still have to refer to the videos occasionally, if it's been awhile.
Also, if buttonholes wouldn't be too difficult, could I just find any pattern that has buttonholes in it and follow those directions, or should I try to find a pattern for a scarf like the one I am trying to make?
Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it!
