The Gatan Neckwarmer is a fun knit with all the best parts of making a sweater with no sleeve island in sight. As a garment it is a brilliant layering piece for spring, winter and fall.

Knit like a top down raglan sweater it stops short of sleeve island and is instead finished with a beautiful icord edge. Stitches are picked up for the folded neck and worked in simple rib. Full of interesting details it is both a fun and quick knit.

Note: The pattern includes instructions on how to adjust the size to fit your bust size or length of torso.
