..... I am so pleased with the finish & now that I have done a cardi top down, I am sure I can knit another & have a different stitch pattern for the collar or long sleeves or...... my goodness, there are so many variations !
Remember the Green Scrunchable Scarf that I knitted for my niece ? As I showed the scarf to the ladies in my knitting groups, we came up with the idea of a neck warmer using the same stitch pattern & so during the weekend, I found some leftover sock yarn & cast on. About 4 hours later ......
...... I just can't believe how fast this knitted up. It's so easy & will make a great present. This neck warmer measures 80cm x 10cm & fits nicely around the neck. This is a really great stitch pattern & I love it, it's so easy - cast on 23 sts (the stitch pattern is a multiple of 3 sts with 2 end sts). With yarn in front, slip the 1st st purlwise, (k2, p1 for 7 times) & knit the last st. Repeat this for every row until you have the required length.
I knit mine with 6mm needles with 2 sock yarn together. A great way to use up the left over sock yarn !
