This is a gift for a friend whose favourite colour is yellow. Mine is being knit with Cabin Fever Cotton Tweed that found its way into my stash sometime over the last few years.
The pattern is 3 Rib Cowl by Debbie Seton. Free on ravelry. A simple 3x3 rib that you knit for 11 inches.
Or, until you run out of yarn, as I did with the one below. Closer to six inches than eleven it still makes a great neck warmer.
This one I knit with the remaining variegated used for Wilma's crocheted kerchief
These fast, addictive knits, can be finished in a weekend. Great gifts and great stash busters. My intentions exactly.
