This has been designed to be completely adjustable to suit the person who wears it, whether it is a tight and snug fit, or loose and wrappable. There is no counting involved, cast on or rounds, and includes instructions on when to stop in order to use a whole skein.
The pattern is written for DK, but you can substitute any weight yarn as long as you use a suitable needle size to match your yarn. Using the materials suggested the pattern creates a wonderfully thick layered-feel to the fabric, perfect for those chilly days. I like my neck warmers to stay high up on my neck so the needle size in the pattern creates a strong or stiff fabric since this was my preference, but if you want a looser fabric all you need are needles a few sizes larger.

My Mum taught me to knit when I was a little girl, and I took it up again during Sixth Form. Through this, finding Ravelry, and my love of yarn because of Ravelry, I’ve also caught the dyeing bug this year (2012) and I’ve been concentrating on gradient yarns. In total excitement (and maybe over enthusiasm) I’ve opened my own Etsy shop: Gradiance Yarns. A selection of the DK colours can also be found in The Sheep Shop in Cambridge, which is run the lovely Sarah. I have also started designing my own patterns.View all patterns by designer (1) »
