I like neck warmers better than scarves – they don’t come open so my hands are free & I can easily bring them over my ears to keep the cold winds out when I’m cycling. They are also really easy to make.
Sarah very generously gave me a stripy cashmere sweater that a previous owner had more or less felted.
I cut off the sleeves & the top of the sweater just under the armholes and finished the edge with a fairly wide zig zag stitch.
The wavy edge became the bottom of the neck warmer & looks rather like a frill.
It goes with my new (to me) coat and I can cycle without the ends of a scarf drifting out into the traffic.
