Pattern Description:

Warmers for Warriors are a special collection of neck warmer patterns. All the proceeds of your pattern purchase goes to supporting the Wounded Warriors Project. Lavender Hill Knits is a proud supporter of our troops, and their families, who have served our country in the armed forces and are coping with injuries that occurred during their service. All the patterns in this collection are easy and quick to knit. They are perfect for men or women and make great gifts. At the end of the pattern there are abbreviated instructions. Print out that one page on cardstock paper, cut around the border and you have a convenient shortened version of the instructions that you can easily slip into a small knitting pouch. I hope you enjoy making these warmers and I'm thrilled that your purchase helps me support Wounded Warriors! Thank you so much :)

The Black Diamond Warmer is a great pattern for beginning knitters looking to go down a bit more challenging trail or for experienced knitters who love texture. The twisted stitch pattern adds interesting texture without using a cable needle and the resulting knitted fabric is thick and cozy helping to keep in body warmth without bulk. Choose a tightly spun yarn for great stitch definition, or use an unspun yarn (more like a roving) for softer stitch definition. The green warmer shown was made using an unspun yarn and the gold warmer shown was made using a tighter spun yarn. It's also a great take-along project since it will fit nicely into a small project bag. A perfect project for taking on a car trip!
