Wrap pattern

I saw an expensive one on recent trip, looks like something I could knit. Done in rib knit, long rectangle with single buttonhole which crosses over to a huge decorative button on opposite side. A pattern would help, or at least instructions for making the buttonhole. Haven't knitted in ages, but this looks simple enough.

thx,
Jacquie

Jackie,


This actually comes out of the civil war. I think I saw a pattern for one in Piecework Magazine. Unfortuately I gave my copy of the magazine to a woman who participates in historical reinactments. It shouldn't be that hard to make. I bet with this information Carol will be able to find you a pattern.

Is this close?

Or maybe this?

These don't "look" right to me based on your description but maybe...

I found all of these at http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/shawls_stoles.php I must say, what this sites define as a wrap varies all over the place from stoles to shrugs with all sorts of variants in between!!!

and if you join Lion Brand's "community", they have lots of wrap patterns listed on that site (marked with a plus sign, it seems).
https://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/register.fcgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.lionbrand.com%2Fpatterns%2F70113A.html
I'm pretty sure I joined some time ago but can't find my user name and password so I can't say for sure if any of them match up with what you want...

I also found this site with patterns listed:
http://dailyknitter.com/patternsdetail.php?type=SH
which has at least one with a button:
http://www.berroco.com/188/188_lilly.html
Otherwise lots of overlap with the knitting pattern central place...

Hope this helps... and fulfills Mary Frances' expectations! LOL

The last one is very close - thanks so much. Will bookmark these sites for when I'm ready.

You are welcome! I suspect there is enough info in those patterns that you could vary the size and stitching to come up with what you want...
