Super Easy Super Pretty Neckwarmer
I seriously use this thing almost every day, now that it's cold. I love the crap out of it. Unfortunately I made it from some random Italian cashmere that my mother brought back from her vacation... so I can't tell you what yarn is best to use. Just pick something DK weight and soft as all hell (may I recommend cashmere? 'Cause you're worth it.)
Gauge is really not very important, here, as long as you're using size 6 needles it will be just fine. But in case you really care, it's approximately 6 st/inch.
CO 32 stitches on size 6 needles
1. s1, knit rest
2. s1, k1, *p2, k2, repeat from star ending with p2
Repeat those two rows until you have about 13 or 14 inches (more if you want...make sure it overlaps comfortably.) Sew on a button about three inches from one side. Make a 4 stitch icord... mine was about 2.5 inches long but you'll want to vary it depending on the size of your button so it doesn't slip. Sew the ends of the icord onto the center of the other end of the neckwarmer. Block flat and enjoy.
