This is another “Leftover Sock Yarn” project! Dig out your #3 -16” circular needle again! Pick leftover yarn from 2 pairs of average size socks and get going! This project is perfect knitting for the car, the beach, vacation, or any place where mindless knitting is required. Also, it’s a great mans’ or ladies’ go to gift.

There are some very good videos on You Tube that show a few ways to do the corrugated rib technique. You may want to explore these. I use a combination of continental knitting and “American” knitting. Hold one color in the right hand and the other color in the left. Knit with one hand and purl with the other hand.
If you don’t have suitable yarn scraps, purchase enough yarn for one pair of socks. You may have enough yarn for two neckwarmers.
