Bristol Neck Warmer

For the SLC SnB’s 4th anniversary, we did a one-skein swap. Anything you wanted to make, as long as it only took one skein of yarn. That might be a chunky 50-yard skein, or a laceweight yarn with hundreds of yards – your choice.

For my swap item, I created a neckwarmer. I’ve written up the pattern, which is available on my free patterns page. Or, you can go to the Ravelry pattern page.

Yarn: Whatever you want. The amount needed will depend on the yarn thickness and the desired length, but probably about 100-150 yards if you’re using worsted or DK yarn. Great for stash-busting! Shown using 1 skein of Bristol Yarn Gallery “Buckingham” (80% Baby Alpaca, 20% Silk; 50 gr/218 yards). Since it’s a fingering-weight yarn, I held the yarn doubled throughout, and used every bit of the skein.

Needles and Gauge: As appropriate to your yarn. I used US6 needles, and my gauge was about 24 stitches/32 rows per inch in the pattern stitch.

Finished Size: Knit to fit. The piece shown is 5″ x 20″.

The neck warmer can be worn flat, or you can fold the top down for a collar-type look as long as your yarn isn’t too bulky.

    I loved it so much, I had already snagged it off Ravelry before I read this post. It’d be perfect for riding lessons in a chilly arena – just sayin!
