I love neck warmers but I don’t like to pull them over my head. That’s why I designed one you can button up.
The neck warmer is knitted in up-down direction and shaped with short rows. The crocheted border adds a bit more feminine touch.
I named it after my good friend who shares with me the passion for knitting.
Both, written and charted instructions are given.
Approximate finished measurements:
Width: 19 inches (48 cm) from upper edge, 38 inches (95 cm) from lower edge

As width and length of the neck warmer are easily changeable, the gauge is not critical.
