Knitted Neck Warmer

The gift giving season took on a whole new meaning for me this year.  Learning to knit again has been such a fun experience these past few months, and I can’t seem to get enough of it.  I knit my sister, Elisabeth, a neck warmer to keep her cozy during these cold months.  Rather than knitting a looser and longer scarf, this accessory sits (somewhat) snugly around her neck.  The the yarn color I chose, Berry Pie Mix, complements her wonderfully wild and curly brown hair.

The Materials:

How-To:

  1. Cast on 25 stitches.
  2. Garter stitch for as many rows as needed to fit over your head.
  3. Bind off, leaving a three-foot tail of yarn for sewing.
  4. This pattern calls for a special twist at the end.  Here is a picture tutorial of how to create this:

This is a versatile accessory that could be worn in the fall, winter, and even early spring.  Choose a yarn color for a loved one and whip one of these up in no time for an upcoming birthday or Valentine’s Day!

Note: Pattern by Judy.
