Looking for "slot" type scarf pattern

I know I have seen several like this, a scarf with a “slot” (like an extended buttonhole) so that one end of the scarf goes into it and it snugs up nice and warm on your neck. I just can’t find one now! Anyone remember where they’ve seen one? I am started on a scarf and I just want to review the giant buttonhole thing. I get that you bind off the middle part, but on the other side of the buttonhole, how do you cast back on?

If anyone can tell me this, that would be good enough also!

Kung Fu Knitter is knitting again! After a loooong stretch of crocheting… :happydance:

Took me a minute think of the name… Keyhole Scarf! Tons of them on Ravelry. I used the advanced search and put keyhole in the search bar and selected scarf from the categories. - Here’s just a few of the many free ones and lots more pay ones.


This may be one you’re thinking of, too. -

Thanks Jan! Perfect!

Hmm I was trying to change my avatar… keep trying !

If you want me to change it let me know.

Hi I have done the “bow tie” type and the “slot” type…As of now, I started a scarf and decided to add a little something to it…So I looked thru my Stitch n Bitch book and Debbie has a great pattern for a “key hole scarf”…What I did is get to a point on my scarf where a “SLOT” would look good, divide the stitches in half, cast on a new ball of yarn and work with two balls of yarn…very easy…BTW, I am working with scraps, so all my rows are different…but same concept!

Ooh I like that! I am going to look through my S&B…

Jan, at one time I had made an avatar using some online free site - my DSD actually found it. Can’t use that one now b/c my hair is a dif color! Do you know a free site for making avatars? Then if I can’t figure out how to put it in place I will hit you up for that too! What would I (and the rest of us) do without you??? :muah:

:hug: I’m sure about any site for making avatars, but the link in my sig has some resizing links. Was that what you need?

Anyway, I just discovered I can grab the photo link right from here. You want me to change your pic?
