We can’t stop making neck warmers. They’re so quick, beautiful and utilitarian. Christa’s newest version is knit in Lorna’s Laces Swirl Chunky with a strand of Kid Silk Haze—the Swirl is on sale so you can justify adding the Kid Silk Haze for that extra bit of luxury (or not, the Swirl would still be nice on its own).

Make two in an evening . . . add a special button like these by Joan Tayler, and you’ve got the perfect “last minute knitted gift” plus one for yourself!
