The inspiration for these came from our own winter wardrobes. A lot of our clothes are loose fitting, with low necklines and short sleeves, which can sometimes be a little drafty. The neck wrap and wrist warmers are small pieces, perfect for using up odd amounts of left over yarn. They could be dk yarns as well, since the size isn’t too crucial. Close the neck wrap with a shawl pin or pretty brooch.
