i REALLY love this! i'm really into short, collar-like scarves right now, and the buttons on this makes it even better. do you think you'll write up a pattern for this?

The scarf looks great! I made one myself and if I may offer a word of advice? I'm not sure how tight fitting yours will be, but mine certainly needs a button on the back side to hold the other end in its place. Right now, it tends to creep up so the scarf isn't buttoned at an angle, but like a tube.

Super cute, great job! The garter stitch border and buttons accent it perfectly!

Hahaha "apply within"--that made me smile. I enjoy your blog a lot! Everything you've made is gorgeous and is photographed beautifully--hopefully the recipient of your Malabrigo goodness loves it as much as me!
