I used a large antique button from the 1890s to make this ring. It's called a "Gay 90's" button & was probably used as dramatic coat button.

And finally, from me, Zizi Rho Designs:
This is one of the first pattern stitches I ever learned, taught to me by the woman who taught me to knit, my great-grandmother. It's an easy stitch, but it makes a beautiful scarf...
