OK. So we’ve all seen the ‘super quick knit’ patterns that seem like a good idea until you realise that they’re actually referring to those amongst us that can break all kinds of speed knitting records.
I’m a steady knitter, neither fast nor slow and if we’re being extremely honest, I’m prone to distraction. However, this little neck warmer did actually take a little over an hour to knit up – PROMISE!
So what are you going to need?
I’ve used 10mm needles and 2 balls of Rico Fashion Elegance in shade 3. They’re 5ometres each so you need approx 100metres of super chunky yarn.
Cast on 20sts and knit every row in plain/garter stitch until work measures 56cms/22″. Cast off loosely
Join by sewing your cast on and cast off edges together.
Of course now my neck’s warm but I can’t see a blooming thing.
I’m going to make a couple for my youngest to wear as he always forgets to put a scarf on and I’m sure my hubby whose a plumber and constantly working outside on dairy farm installations at the moment, might even fancy a couple.
In case your wondering it’s 20cm/8″ deep.
