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! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cast on knit and purl bind off GAUGE not critical for this project - about 11 stitches and 18 rows = 2" in pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS one size - approximately 6" wide and 20" in circumference

I've always made things as long as I can remember. Both my Mom and Dad were"makers", so it just was what you did! The handcrafted item was always respected and expected in my family. Mom taught me how to knit, which was a challenge, as she was left-handed and I'm right-handed! Knitting is the one art and craft that I always return to through the years. My other favorites are marbling, bookbinding, calligraphy and beading. It's especially fun to try and combine all of my favorites into one design! I can add sewing to the favorites list again after taking the "Couture Dress" class on Craftsy - I hadn't sewn for myself in a long time because fitting and the way patterns are done frustrated me to no end - the class gave me a whole new way to approach sewing and I'm enjoying it again.
