Hand knit neck warmer

Let us knit ONE more neck warmer, or cowl, or snood..whatever you like to call them.  I know, there are so many patterns to choose from but the knitting pattern here is easy and you only need two needles and about 200 gr (8 oz) of soft bulky yarn.  I made this neck warmer in July (!) because it was a gift for a friend in Holland and her birthday is in August.   The pattern is originally from Phildar and the yarn for this pattern is called Etincelle.  I did not use Etincelle but another bulky yarn I had in my stash.  Gauge is 9 sts x 12 rows with knitting needle sz. 11 mm (US 15) is 10 cm or 4″.

Yarn:  200 (8 oz) bulky yarn

Needles:  11 mm (US 15)

Cast on 70 stitches and knit about 4 rows in ribbing 1/1 (K1, P1)

Row 5:  (and all uneven rows that follow)  P2, *K1, P3,*  knit from * until end of row

Row 6:  *K3, P1* knit from * until 2 last stitches.  Knit 2 last stitches.

After 30 rows (34 total w/ 4 rows ribbing), knit 4 rows ribbing K1, P1 (total 38 rows) and cast off.

Sew sides together w/ kitchener stitch ( great tutorial on youtube).

You can wear this neck warmer on both sides.


The neck warmer is ready to be mailed overseas.

Here is a picture of my friend riding on her bicycle through the “polders” wearing my hand knit creation, isn’t it fun to make something for someone?


I hope you can make this cozy cowl, and if so, mail me a picture when you are done.  BTW cats love em too…
