More Neck Warmers

I've been making neck warmers as Christmas gifts. The bottom one is made with Patons Bohemian in color 11425 Poetic Pinks. I just knit in an e-wrap with the green KK loom until I'm about done with the skein, then bind off. The velour feel is very soft and snuggly.

The middle one is Bernat Alpaca color 93040 Ebony. The top one is also the Bernat Alpaca, but color 93141 Indigo. With that one, I did a rib stitch of K2 P1 around the loom. This neck warmer is more like a turtleneck and less like a cowl; the ribbing allows it to easily stretch over the head.

These knit up as quickly as a hat, it's just the bind-off that's different. They're great to wear instead of a scarf since the ends don't get in the way. These will be going to people who, in winter, work outside, care for animals and ride a bike.
