Punky Gloves and Choker
Bernat Boa - 1 skein (Peacock shown here)
Large funky button
Thread & needle for sewing on button
This pattern uses less than a skein - that means that you'll still have enough yarn left over for, say, trim on a hat.
hdc dec: yo, insert hook into next st, yo, pull up loop) 2 times, yo and pull through all 5 loops on hook.
Round 1: ch 14, join to first ch to make a ring (try not to twist ch, but if you do, it's ok.) ch 2.
Round 2: hdc in each ch. join to first hdc (14 hdc). ch 2.
Round 3-5: hdc in each hdc. join to first hdc. ch 2.
Round 6: hdc in first hdc. ch 2, sk next 2 hdc, hdc in next hdc (thumb hole made). hdc dec over next 2 hdc, hdc in remaining hdc. join to first hdc, ch 2.
Round 7: hdc in hdc, 2 hdc in ch 2 sp, hdc in remaining sts around. ch 1, turn.

Round 1-5: same as right gauntlet.
Round 6: hdc in first hdc, ch 2, sk next 2 hdc, hdc in next hdc (thumb hole made). hdc in each st, working hdc dec in last 2 st of round.
Rounds 7-8: same as right gauntlet.
Row 1:ch 28 plus enough chs to wrap around the button (making an end button hole. I used 5 ch with the large button shown, which was about 1.5"). sl st in 28th ch. sc in each ch across, with 3 sc in last ch. Working on opposite side of the chain, sc in each ch, stopping in the 28th ch (right before the button hole). ch 1, turn.
* If 28 seems too long based on button size and neck size, just use a smaller chain.
Row 2: sc in each sc around both sides of the ch until you reach the button hole. Finish off.
Sew button onto the end of the choker where there is no button hole. Chain loop should fit comfortably over the button so that it's secured, without being too difficult to get on or off.
