Hand spun neck warmer

Nothing like a steady stream of finished objects to make me want to knit knit knit. Here is the neck warmer I finished just before the five day hat adventure. Four colours of hand spun Shetland, one of merino and one of baby camel/BFL.

It changed quite a bit from the original plan, which was to use the Anne Hanson pattern that matches the fingerless mittens I made some time ago. The pattern for those calls for one colour of yarn and I found with my stripes it was all a bit much.

So I changed the pattern to make it much simpler and added a row of double crochet round the edges to stabilize it. I think it’s going to need lining as it is still a bit itchy. That should help keep the wind out though…
