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.
- 1 skein of Berroco Ultra Alpaca yarn
- Size 8 knitting needles
- Tapestry needle
- Cast on 25 stitches.
- Garter stitch for as many rows as needed to fit over your head.
- Bind off, leaving a three-foot tail of yarn for sewing.
- 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.
