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
I slipped the first stitch of every row to keep my edges tidier but it’s not necessary.
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.
