Here's an easy neck warmer pattern that's perfect for anyone who wants to knit up something quickly. It's so easy and simple to knit you'll want to make more than one. And it's great for new knitters.
I whipped up a couple of these one night when it was bitterly cold outside. One is used as a neckwarmer and one as a knitted headband to keep my ears and head warm. I didn't really want to make a full length scarf or anything like that. I just wanted to keep warm without all the extras if you know what I mean.
I just love the simplicity and versatility of this simple and easy knitting pattern.
With this neck warmer pattern I used a nice thick wool yarn and knit it extra wide so that it could be folded in half and doubled up for extra warmth.
Just as a side note here this makes a wonderfully easy quick knit gift for someone as well. Even though it's made in garter stitch only it's a timeless and simple gift that will be appreciated and loved.
Just pick out some of your favorite color yarns and get started knitting. And have some knitting fun too.
Sometimes simple is all you really need.

You may find it easier to seam up the neck warmer with a different yarn. Roving yarn doesn't seam up very well and tends to fall apart. Try a worsted weight yarn that closely matches the yarn you used. Of course if you want to try using the roving yarn do give it a try. I did use it for my neck warmer however it did come apart at times.
