I made two neckwarmers over the winter (I was never fond of scarves) and just finished a third, lighter version.  I wanted something I could cram down the neck of my jacket that would block the wind but not be too hot.

Here's the first one, it's more of a cowl, really: bulky and shapeless.


The second is my favorite.  It's loosely based on this pattern http://www.needlebeetle.com/free/nw.htm

If it looks a little stretched out it's because I made it to fit myself but my much more photogenic (if slightly larger-necked) BF is modeling.

The third I knit in garter stitch with short row shaping.



That's it.  Just some FOs; I thought I'd post for closure.

The first one is really just a tube, knit in the round.  I just cast on 120 sts and kept going until I used up two skeins of lion brand Jiffy.  The pattern is a sort of woven rib thing I invented because I wanted it to be reversible.  It goes something like this:

Cast on a multiple of 6 (instructions are written for working in the round, for working on two needles you'd have to reverse every other row)
Rounds 1-4: K3, P3  repeat
Round 5: Cable 3 fwd, working all stitches as they appear
Rounds 6-9: Work all stitches as they appear
Round 10: Work 3 stitches as they appear, *cable 3 back, working all stitches as they appear.  Repeat from * to end of round.  (You actually end up working the first 3 stitches again in order to make all the cables, this is OK).
Repeat rounds 1-10 for pattern

I hope this makes sense.

I agree with piyolet, your boyfriend should look into modeling as a career if he hasn't already. i like the second one, is it also lion jiffy?

Thank you, Piyolet and sadsadturtle!  I keep telling him how adorable he is but I don't think he believes me.  I showed him your posts and he turned bright pink.  So cute.

And the second neckwarmer is Woolease.  I got really sick of Jiffy after making the first one.  It just feels so acrylic-y to me.

hehe, be sure to tell him that the fact that he turned bright pink makes him even cuter!
