Please Note: Getting gauge for this project is critical! The yardage using the Lotus Cashmere Chunky is very tight (within just a few feet of yarn) so it’s very important to get stitch gauge. If you are a tight knitter, it is recommended that you go up a needle size. Also, to conserve yarn we’ve used a cable cast on (uses less yarn) and made our tails as short as we dare. If using 2 colors, you can make 2 Neckies by swapping the MC and the CC on the 2nd Neckie.
