A hug around the neck

You know that song..... " I love you, a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck"
That is what this Luxe neck warmer is, a hug around the neck.
I love it, love it. It makes the best gift for someone special.
It is truly divine because it is knit up in cashmere.
It is fast, made on big needles, and really, neck warmers are my favorite accessory as of late. What's not to love?


The details:
Pattern: Luxe Neck warmer from Knit 2 Together
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky, 2 balls
Needles: size 1o
Time: One day baby, one day!



It really is a nice gift to give, and these great gift tags from Kniterella make it even better!

I have that book and will defintely add that to my list of things to make for a Christmas present. I love the baby cape in that book. Some fun stuff there.

That does look nice, the perfect thing when there's that chill in the air.

I'm going to try that neck warmer, I have that book. I previously made a neck warmer that I wasn't pleased with, I think something was missing in the pattern. Love that green sweater from your previous post. Another one to add to my list.
