Here I am as promised!

PATTERN UPDATED WITH NEW SIZES! (27092011)

I've actually fallen in love with this neckwarmer. I usually don't enjoy wearing them as a rule as I find them itchy. But this one is not itchy! It's soft and squishy and fits perfectly.

I hope that you will enjoy making this neckwarmer as much as I am. It is a very fast project, one can be started and finished in an evening.

PATTERN NOTES
  • This neckwarmer is worn snuggly, if a roomier neckwarmer is wanted, use one size up for the finished measurements to allow for ease.
  • The beginning and the end of the neckwarmer will not match. That is normal because of the joining method to keep the central lattice lace pattern seamless. 
  • Read the pattern through before beginning to understand where stitch patterns meld into the next. 
  • Neckwarmer is worked in the round throughout.  
  • ch-1, ch-2, ch-4 count as a stitch throughout the pattern. 
  • When ending each of the lattice lace rounds, ch-1 and dc into beg ch-1 counts as a ch 3.
  • Sizes will be marked in brackets where needed. If there is no change, then instructions pertain to all 3 sizes.
