Ward off the chill with either of Greyhaven's size options the cozy, one-skein neckwarmer version, or the luxurious versatility of the slouchy style. Either way, written and charted directions, plentiful photos and helpful tips included in the pattern for newer knitters make Greyhaven an enjoyable knit and a speedy solution for last-minute gifting.
Inspired by the lush imagery of J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings series, the design is based on a simple arched, leafy stitch pattern and it's gracefully sculpted shape is worked seamlessly into a lovely layering piece.
The smaller size is easy to tuck into a coat collar, and the slouchy version can be worn many ways including draped simply around the neck, folded over double, pulled up as an impromptu hood or pinned closed, and makes an especially nice gift when presented with a pretty brooch.
