Shoulder Throncho


A smaller, chunky Throncho which wraps around the shoulders.  The button holes are added at the cast off end and then buttons are sewn onto one side to correspond with these for a half-cross-over effect. 

There are 3 sizes.  The 1st size appears first, then 2 and 3 in ( ). 

A variation on this design, in which you add another discreet line of button holes to one side of the Throncho, allows it to be worn fastening to the front.  The same buttons work with both options.  See my notes at the end of the main pattern if you want to incorporate this feature.  I would.  If I was you.

Both the cable patterns in this design are easy and extremely fast to knit up.  Any standard chunky yarn that knits on 7mm needles will work. 

I rate this as easy.
