Has anyone tried making a neck-warmer thing?  I'm imagining something that looks (and works up) like a wide hat brim, but is missing the hat, then wearing it around the neck.

Would this work?  Would it be warm?  Would it look ok?  Has anyone tried it? (If so, do you have pictures?)

I have done this using the purple adult hat loom and I made a matching hat to go with it. 



There is also a pattern in the "Knitting Wheel Fashions" book.  But I basically knit for about 10-11 inches, and then brought the first row up like a brim and then did a crochet cast off (chain 2 between each stitch).

I've made a couple.  I made one that was black and then I did several rows on the top edge in a matching pom-pom type yarn, it's really pretty.  Sadly, I don't have a picture of that one.

Then I made one for my daughter who likes cutes things, it's  a crazy octopus/squid neck warmer, she loves it:

That is an adorable squid neck warmer!  All these great neck warmers!  I've been asked by a relative to make them a neck warmer/ hat set.  We shall see how that turns out later.

I had a question.  I started making a Harry Potter Unity Scarf for my mom on my new experimental "pick-up stick" loom, and wanted to add some textured elements.  I've seen a lot of textured washcloths on Craftster and want to give it a try.  I know I'm not using a Knifty Knitter for this, but they work the same. 



What is the trick to getting the results you expect using knit/purls?  As you can see the "H" in the crest is not turning out right.  The verticals are correct, but the horizontals knit stitches are not popping out.  I'm e-wrapping (twisted stitch) with plain purls.  Could this be the problem?  Or is it my pattern design?  Do I need 2 consecutive knit stitch rows for it to show up?  Anyone have any tips that might help?  I'd really appreciate it.

Here is the pattern I was going for:
