Join yarn at other end of scarflette and repeat rows 30 to 42 on that side. Fasten off and weave in tail.
Closure: I decided to give this scarflette an Oriental-style closure. This is the simplest one I've ever made and I think anyone can make it. I also decided to use a purchased wooden button instead of knot button because it is easier as well, but my mind's wheels are turning. I would like to make and teach other closures as well, so stay tuned.
To make this closure you have to decide on a cord to make. The easiest and most pliable one is the crab stitch cord, used very often in modern Russian Irish-style crochet.
I have my own way of making it, so I will try to explain it here as follows:
With F crochet hook and the red yarn, and leaving a nice tail, make a loop as if to start crocheting. Make 2 ch.
Row 1: make 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Do not ch 1. Turn. Row 2: insert the hook in the loops that formed on the side of the sc made, not on the top loop usually used, pull up a loop and complete sc as usual. Turn. Row 3: insert hook in the loops that formed on the side of the sc made in the prev row, pull up a loop and complete sc as usual. Turn. Row 4: Insert hook in the little loops that formed on the previous row on the opposite side of the loop you have in your hook, draw a loop through those loops and complete an sc. Turn.
Repeat this process until your strip of cord measures 8 1/2 inches. Fasten off, leaving a very long tail, sufficient to sew all the decorative gathers, I would say about 1/2 yard of yarn (better to have too much than not to have enough). With the f hook, make two chains at the end of the strip of cord that has the shortest yarn tail. Pull yarn through. Thread your blunt needle with that smaller tail and make it disappear into the cord. Now, pick up the scarflette and counting from the bottom sc row upward, lay the strip of cord, folded inhalf, with the ends meeting and the middle forming a loop facing the other edge of the scarflette, and pin it in place. Thread the blunt needle with the long yarn tail and working inside the loops of your cord, sew it to the scarflette as invisibly as possible. As you go, make long "bundles" of stitches, bar-tacking with vertical stitches to close up the cord even more and to decorate even further. Repeat across, using the photo to guide yourself as to where to do it, or follow your own taste.
Fasten off. Sew wooden button on opposite side of scarflette at the right level to meet the loop of the closure.

Ch 29.
Row 1- 1 dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 3, turn. (Ch 3 counts as first dc in every row throughout.)
Row 2- Skip next 2 dc, make 6 dc in next dc (shell made), skip 4 dc, make shell in next dc, skip 4 dc, make 1 shell in next dc, skip 4 dc, make shell in next dc, rep across, untilyo have 5 shells. When you hve reached the last 5 dc, skip 4 of those dc and make 1 last dc at end of row. Ch 3,turn.
Row 3- Work 1 dc in each of next 5 dc over shell in previous row, skip last dc of shell, 1 dc in each of next 5 dc across shell of prev. row, skip last dc of shell, 1 dc in each of next 5 dc of shell , skip last dc of shell, 1 dc in each of next 6 dc of shell (do not skip last dc of shell), 1 dc in each dc across next shell and in top of starting ch-3. Ch 3, turn.
Row 4- Make 1 dc in each dc across.
Row 5- Rep. row 2. Row 6- Rep row 3. Row 7- Rep row 4. Continue repeating these rows in this sequence for pattern, if you wish to use it for a scarf or something like that. For an afghan block or strip: If you would like to use this pattern for a sampler afghan, to combine it with other blocks, make a swatch with the hook you will be using for the other blocks and make sure you will be getting the exact gauge so that the block will fit perfectly with the size of your other blocks and simply make the pattern repetions until you reach the size of your other blocks. If you will be doing a mile-a-minute type of strip lapghan, just keep on going up until you reach the size you want.
You can also use this stitch for a stole. I have started a scarf with it and I like the feel. Not too heavy, and yet warm
Enjoy!

Take the measuring tape and measuring from the edge of the semi-circle upward, measure 10 inches. Sew button there. On the opposite side of neck warmer, at the height of the button, make a buttonhole as follows: With B crochet hook and Burgundy, join yarn to edge of neck warmer with a slip st. Ch 3, skip 1 dc on the neck warmer and join the loop with a slip stitch, then work 4 sc on the loop, over the ch sts, sl st on next dc. Fasten off. Adapt this to the size of your chosen button.
I chose to use a small button, but you can use any button you like, even a yarn one made by yourself, depending on how causal your use of the neck warmer will be. If you are giving it away as a gift, as I am, you can make the button as discreet as I have done or as fancy as your preference will make it.
Enjoy!

You're finished!
Variation: Instead of tassels you can make pompoms and sew them to the points of the "V" on each side of the neck warmer.
How to Make a Tassel:
To make a simple tassel, cut a piece of cardboard a little bit larger than the length you want your tassels to be. Wind the amount of yarn you would like around the cardboard. Carefully take your bundle of yarn out of the card. Thread a tapestry needle and pass the needle through all the threads in your bundle. Then, using another length of yarn, tie the tassel tightly. Trim your tassels to be of the same size. Use the length of yarn in the tapestry needle to sew the tassel to the granny triangle point. Fasten off.
Or you can use your favorite method of tassel-making and even vary your tassels!
Enjoy!

You can leave as is or you can make two tassels to keep ends pointed and avoid curl-up.

To make a simple tassel, cut a piece of cardboard a little bit larger than the length you want your tassels to be. Wind the amount of yarn you would like around the cardboard. Carefully take your bundle of yarn out of the card. Thread a tapestry needle and pass the needle through all the threads in your bundle. Then, using another length of yarn, tie the tassel tightly. Trim your tassels to be of the same size. Use the length of yarn in the tapestry needle to sew the tassel to the granny triangle point. Fasten off.
Or you can use your favorite method of tassel-making and even vary your tassels!
