Stylish Neckie

Best Blog Tips

I love combo pieces, those that you can wear in different ways are really nice. Here's another one of those! This pretty neckie is softly textured to lend it interest and a bit lacy so that it won't be stiff around your neck. The beauty of it is that you can wear it only buttoned at the top and opened at the bottom as a neckie or you can close it all up and wear it as a gentle cowl. This easy and attractive pattern is also relatively fast to make!
