A soft neckwarmer in two sizes (S/L) provides a chill-chasing layer as pretty as it is warm. Knit in a “scaffolding” motif with a little openwork and some twist-stitch accents, it is finished with a knit-on border of lace points. This piece knits up quickly, travels well, and makes great use of a small skein of luxury yarn for a beautiful gift.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
