Fiber Arts Friday: My New Winter Neck Warmer

I can no longer deny that winter will come. So, my newest creation is this neck warmer which I was experimenting with on my knitting needles this week. Using 12mm needles and double strands of a chunky yarn, it is knit in an uneven rib pattern. The result is big on thickness and texture.

I crocheted a placket for the buttonholes. Wooden buttons add interest and warmth to the piece complimenting the rusty orange yarn.

I wonder if the other fiberistas are thinking about winter this Fiber Arts Friday? Go see at Alpaca Farm Girl.

Happy winter knitting!
