Pattern Description:

Wear it under your coat or over a top, this neck-warmer is a versatile accessory with a feminine touch.

It's a simple introduction to using 2 colors with a slip stitch - fully explained in the pattern - to spice up your knitting. This is a very easy 2-color pattern that is knitted flat, then the ends are joined to form a rosette ruffle with an easy-sew stitch using the yarn.

My patterns are written in a non-traditional way to be very beginner-friendly. I use few, if any, abbreviations and give instructions in a row-by-row format in easy-to-read large type with a color picture of the finished project.

Kits are available for this project - just add needles!
