I've been seeing all the cute and cuddly neckwarmers that everyone has been making, and I would love to make one too, but I can't knit or crochet. I would like to try to make one from some fleece I have.

Whats the general shape of a neckwarmer? Is it a just a simple rectangle?

I feel kinda silly posting this, but just want to know before i start cutting lol

Personal swaps are fine with me Cheesy

when i knitted a neckwarmer, i made it as a rectangular with a bit taken off at the centre from each side, like:



i know, i'm not good at drawing with a mouse.

i now think that i maybe shouldn't have made it into that shape, that a rectangular would have been better. i've worn it like three times or something because it doesn't fit.

so the moral to this story is, i'd cut out a practice piece and try with that. you can decide for yourself and don't have to listen to other people's opinions.

They're usually just rectangles.  You can either sew the two ends together, to make a loop, or put buttons and loops/buttonholes.
