Specs & Details
A handy, happy-making neckwarmer for anyone who braves the cold. An excellent warm-up (pun intended) for bigger colorwork projects, such as the Valdres Pullover.
The Kos Neckwarmer is worked from the bottom up, following a simple colorwork chart that marks out the yoke decreases, and finishes with a ribbed fold-over collar.
