Looking for a no-fuss solution to keep out the winter chill?
Slinky features a clever drawstring at the top to keep out the cold, and two shaping options: a simple cowl, or a bandana style to provide added warmth for the chest.
Showcase that special tonal or your favourite variegated yarn in this sweet neck warmer.

Pattern includes instructions in three sizes from child to adult. You can use Fingering, Sport or DK weight yarn.

This is a project created using basic stitches and minimal shaping and finishing. It incorporates a repetitive pattern that requires some experience, but once set up is easy to work. Knowledge of post stitches is required.
