Button Coil

The Button Coil is a cowl or a scarf you can wrap any way you like. I’ve been doodling and swatching for this idea for years and finally hit on the right combination of color, texture, and construction.  Most of the sample was knit while I waited to pull baguettes out of the oven during my overnight baking shifts.


350 yds worsted weight yarn

Sample was worked in Dream in Color Classy (worsted weight; 100% superwash merino wool; 250 yds/113g skein) in #830 Good Luck Jade

Size 8 (5mm) straight or circular needles or size needed to obtain gauge

Yarn needle for weaving in ends

12 buttons, approximately 3/4-inch in diameter

Sewing needle and thread in matching color to attach buttons
