Rip and knit, rip and knit, the usual. I started over because I decided the scarf was too wide. If I made it narrower, it would be longer.
Carol thought it should be a proper collar, just long enough to wrap around the neck. I wanted to use up all my yarn, plus I had visions of tassels at the ends. See picture.
I worked a buttonhole in the third to last central domino. I still have to get buttons. The idea is you could button it closed so it will stay wrapped, nice and warm around your neck. If you are the lucky

I actually do have a reason for knitting this scarf thingy. I don’t want to start on anything substantial while I’m waiting for yarn. So I dug around a bit in my stash to come up with a couple yarns of approximately equal gauge and quantity.
