Keep your neck warm and cozy with Junta. Junta features a fun to knit textured stitch pattern.

Junta is worked lengthwise like a scarf, and then seamed together, making it simple to add length (which would require more yarn). An i-cord edging is worked at the same time as the textured stitch pattern for a neat finish.
