This pattern offers a simple children’s scarf/adult neck warmer for the purpose of contemplative prayerful knitting. In addition to the two patterns (for the children’s scarf and the adult neck warmer), the pdf includes instructions for an opening gratitude exercise, prayerful knitting on behalf of others and yourself, and two concluding prayers. They have been inspired by both the Buddhist and Christian spiritual traditions.

The difference between the children’s scarf and the adult neck warmer is: the adult neck warmer has buttons and button holes.

The pattern requires one skein of Manos Del Uruguay. No gauge is offered because the piece will stretch when blocked. Make sure to start the seed stitch border when you think you only have enough yarn to finish it. There is a suggested length to do this but your discretion may be necessary.
