what could feel better against the wind than a luscious ring of cashmere for one’s throat? this one features a little openwork that remains un-fussy as it puddles into the neckline of a coat. it’s a quick, fun project to kick off the gift-knitting season, when you still have time enough to make two—one to give and one to keep (wink!).
no one was happier than me when deb kessler decided to reintroduce her beautiful cashmere yarn lines. she sent me a skein in all my favorite colors with the hope that we’d do a neckwarmer project with it and here we are; thank you deb! please visit deb’s etsy shop to browse her wonderful selection of these and other lovely fiber choices.
many thanks to my friends debby and carissa, who offered to test knit the pattern—they were a huge help in working out the kinks with this one. debby knit the ecru version shown in a couple of the photos below; a completely different look that shows the patterns off in a more sharply-defined way.
