DIMENSIONS

WIDTH: 9 1/4”

LENGTH: ~36”-37”

22 stiches across per row in moss stitch.

Attempting to make a neckwarmer like I’ve seen on the Planned Pooling Facebook page.

Second attempt at PP, but first time with this width and properly following Marly’s video tutorial. Not really difficult, though this colorway Antique has transitional sections that it make it difficult to smoothly transition between certain colors.

Using H hook for the panels.

Seems a bit wide for a neckwarmer?

COLOR COUNTS

BROWN: 5 stitches (should be 6 next time?)

WHITE: 5 stitches

WINE: 6 stitches + 1 transitional

TEAL: 4 stitches + 1 transitional

Making the neckwarmer with half argyle and half solid color. Wanted to go with grey for the solid part, but didn’t have the right shade. Went with this brown yarn I had originally bought to make a fall wreath. The yarn is stiff and kinda scratchy.

I attached the yarn at the starting chains of the argyle section, though doing so technically makes the argyle part upside down as it attaches to the front. I think the beginning part looks messy and prefer it in the back.

All finished!

Each section is about 18” long. Had to rip back the argyle piece about 1”-1.5” to accommodate the button panel at the end. Couldn’t bring myself to have a full 2” button panel. I didn’t like the way the argyle part would have ended.

Had to go down to a G hook for the SC border.

Not sure if it’s the yarn’s color changes or me trying to PP, but there is some warping in the argyle fabric. I think I should have had an extra brown stitch. In the end, those parts ended up looser than the others.

Fringe
Tried a few different ways of making the fringe before settling on 3 strands of 8” yarn. There are 22 groups on the bottom and 22 along the side.

Buttons
The 4 buttons are completely functional. Since I did not sew the panels into place, I’ve had to add a couple of small hidden buttons underneath the argyle section to keep the neckwarmer in place while being worn.
