Based on http://minglingyarn.blogspot.com/2007/09/could-it-be-any-easier-neck-cozy.html with a few minor changes

Ok, I have a new job that I drive 45 minutes or so to and from work each day. And that drive includes going from 4200 feet above sea level down a mountain pass, and through what is essentially a severe wind tunnel. During the summer, its not too bad (as long as you dont overheat your vehicle by running the air while climbing the pass) since the average temp is somewhere in the high 90s through the 110s. The winter, however, can be pretty darn cold. I figured that I need to get warm clothing and accessories to wear on the commute so I wont have to turn the heat on in the car, thus saving gas.
This is a super simple pattern. I had made fingerless gloves last year out of this yarn, very warm, and had quite a bit left over. Not enough to actually make another set of gloves unfortunately, since mine got felted by accident in the washmy 3 year old couldnt even get them on, lol.
I did make a few modifications

    * I used only 1 strand of yarn
    * I repeated rows 6 through 11 for more width due to the narrowness resulting from using a single strand.
    * Because I added a repeat in the rows, I have 3 button holes buttons instead of 2.
    * I added 2 rows of sc, a row of ch3 & sc, and a row of 5scs on each ch3 at each end.
    * Lastly, I added a row of sc to the long edges to made a nice clean edge.

I might make one for my 3 year old, since I KNOW shes going to try to steal mine.Smiley

I knooooooow.  Embarrassed
I said, "Gee Brain, what are we going to do tonight?" the other day and the co-worker I was talking to (who is only 4 years younger than me!) says...
Me: "You know. Pinky and the Brain."
"And the who?"
Me: "...the Brain? Like... Animaniacs?"

It made me feel very old (and sad!).

I LoveLoveLove Pinky and the Brain.  I need to think about TRYING (no guarentees) to make a set. 

Anyone that loves the Animaniacs should check out this link, it's several songs of theirs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOS1EF4XQYs

I was going to ask about a stitch count on the sides as well...it really stumped me.  I have the pattern done to that point, then Tongue

The pattern I use has 2 rows of shell (2dc's, ch 2, 2 dc's), then a v-stitch (dc, ch-2, dc).  I'm never had to worry about rippling of the edges, and if you forget and don't do the v-stitch, I've just did it the next round and continued from there.

Very pretty, I love the look of blackwork, especially since I'm a rennie:)

I started a blanket with redheart yarn and a size H hook, but the points are ruffling up. Any suggestions? Should I rip out and start over with a smaller hook? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks.
I have done several of these, and I haven't had this happen yet.  I have used size H through N to make them.  Could you be adding extra stitches?
