I decided to try my hand at making a neck warmer. It's a nice little project that you can knit up in a day or two. Directions Below.
Size 10 needles
100% cotton 4 PLY yarn
large sewing needle
button of your choice
SK2P - Slip 1, knit 2 together, pass slip stitch over k2tog
Cast on 19 stitches
Row 1 - Purl
Row 2 - K1, *yo, k1, SK2P, k1, yo, k1; repeat from * to end
Repeat rows 1 and 2 for desired length (neck warmer should measure no longer than one inch longer than neck circumference.
last row - Purl
bind off, leave a tail to sew button
Sew the button to the end that you binded off.
The eyelets in the pattern create natural button holes, so you don't have to add any.
* If using cotton, remember it will stretch out a little.
