A few days ago I came across a crochet neck warmer that was posted here on Crafster and I loved it so much that I decided to make a knitted version. After swatching several version I chose a seeded rib stitch, I liked the texture it gave this superbulky yarn. I used burly spun my Brown Sheep company, I have to say I love this yarn, it is sooo soft. I didn't have too much trouble using a US 15 needle, for a second there I was afraid I'd have to use a US 19. I decided to forgo the buttonhole because I wanted the freedom of putting it together anyway I wanted.

Anyway, there are several ways or wearing it. I've actually tried it last night (hence the bleary eyes) it was pretty effective at keeping my ears warm.

So I'm sharing the pattern, you can go to my blog here. Hope you like it.

I like how you've made it so that you can wear it different ways - it's really creative! I definitely wouldn't mind having something like that to cover my ears here in windy Kansas...

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
