I used a very soft Organic cotton from Lion Brand on my Grandma's neck warmer and chose buttons that I knew she would love since they resembled abalone. I am quickly developing a love of button shopping now! Fun stuff! I'm sure I will be keeping my eyes peeled for them where ever we go from now on!
And Theresa's neck warmer is a boucle yarn made from angora. I discovered that angora is 7 times warmer than wool! I have also discovered that I don't care to crochet with boucle yarn:) I like the finished look but man was it tricky!
This was a purchased pattern, here is a link to it (I omitted the flowers).
