I made a green one of these back in December as a Secret Santa gift, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281086.0;topicseen, and I decided I wanted one for myself as well Smiley This time, however, I made it using a thick-to-thin yarn that I've had in my stash for .... 3 years, I think! It was the better part of a scarf when I ran out of yarn and couldn't find it anymore Sad  Anyway, I also used huge needles (12mm for those curious ppl out there) to give it a bit of a "netted" look, and finished it with some horn buttons. I"m not sure if I'm totally happy with the outcome, but with spring right around the corner, having a lighter neckwarmer might be nice.





Please excuse my pale, tired expressions, I need some sleep!  Wink

I love it!! Great job  Smiley

But how long has 12mm been huge? most of my skarves/neckwarmers are made with 20mm needles, which I actually dont consider that big anymore after seeing some 30mm ones in my local shop  Grin

bahaha! You're right, 12mm isn't huge at all, it just is in comparison to rest of my needles.
