Lobster Point Neckwarmer

Hello, everybody!  This is just a pattern for a simple neckwarmer I knit up late last year.  It’s a bit form-fitting, more like a turtleneck sweater without the sweater, and with slits a few inches up the sides so you don’t get that horrible gap between your collar and the neckwarmer!

Lobster Point Neckwarmer

Yarn: 1 skein of fingering yarn.  I used about half of a skein of Nooch Fiber Morningside Sock yarn (400 yards).
Needle: US 3 (3.25 mm) 16 or 12 inch circular needle

Gauge: 53 stitches x 39 rows = 4×4 inches in 2×2 rib

Cast on 68 stitches with the long tail cast-on or preferred method.  For this section, knit back and forth as if on straight needles.

Row 1: *K2, p2, repeat from * until end of row

Repeat row one until piece measures 3 inches from cast-on edge.  Transfer stitches to stitch holder or spare needle and cut yarn.  Make another piece identical to this one.

Transfer held stitches from the first on to the circular needle with the second piece.  Knit in pattern across the second piece and then across the first piece, connecting the two.  At the end of the row, join to work in the round and place marker.

Continue knitting in the round as established in 2×2 rib until piece measures 9 inches long.

Cast off using the cable cast off or preferred method.  Weave in ends and block gently.

Notes: this pattern is un-tech-read and un-test-knit!  It’s just a quick write-up of what I did to make the neckwarmer I’m wearing in the picture.  I hope you enjoy!
