Boxy Neck Warmer Too

Best Blog Tips


This is the Boxy Neck Warmer revisited with a different ending to it for fun. As with the previous pattern, I have simplified the pattern to make it easier to make. It is a wide scarflet that can be enlarged a bit to be used even as a shoulder warmer.
asy as they come and nice to boot! If you are making little gifts to delight your friends for the Holidays, this one might qualify for your list! An added bonus is the little frog closure which you can easily learn to make and which will be very useful for many other things, such as purses, shoulder swraps, cardigans, you name it!
Materials:Worsted weight yarn of your choice (I used Red Heart Tea Leaf for scarflet and scraps of red Heart Honeydew for frog and edging)

tapestry needle
