This is a great unisex accessory to ward off the chill, and it looks very stylish as well. I recommend using a soft wool, such as Yowza or Heartland that will be comfortable against the neck of the wearer.

This is a nice project for travel or conversational knitting, because once the pattern is established you can easily work the pattern until it is as long as you like. It is worked in the round as a long tube, then the ends are grafted together.

The pattern begins with a provisional cast on using waste yarn. The piece is worked in the round following the chart or written instructions to the desired length. Stitches are worked in two colors, but only one color is used at a time. This is a relaxing knit of slipped stitches and stockinette that looks great on men or women.
