The scarf to match "The Republic" Hat.
This scarf was designed to match a hat I designed called “The Republic”. The pattern was inspired by an expensive hat featured on the Banana Republic website.
The scarf features the same wide “buttoned” garter stitch band as the hat. It is perfect for knitting while watching television (or when you’re busy talking to other knitters during “knit-night”) since it only uses garter and stockinette stitch.

Repeat the last two rows until piece measures 30 inches, ending with a RS row. Slip stitches onto a stitch holder.
Second Half of Scarf:
Repeat instructions as for first half of scarf, except do not transfer to stitch holder.
With right sides together, connect the two sides using the three needle bind off. Block to final dimensions. Secure the garter stitch flaps (created from the 13 stitch bind off) with the buttons by sewing one on each side. Be sure to sew through both sections to anchor the button.
