FO: Neckwarmer

Another one bits the dust. I can't express how wonderful it feels to crank these little projects out. I mean. come. on. you gotta love it!!

I know you want to see more then just a peek from under my thick winter coat...okay.

Pattern: Woven Slip Stitch*

Yarn: one skein of Cascade Dolce

Needles: US 6

Started: November 28, 2008

Finished: December 1, 2008

Dimensions: 4 inch wide by 23 inch long

Comments: The pattern is easy to remember and becomes blind knitting for me after a couple of repeats. The alpaca content did make this stretch to a loose fit, but I think works well as I don't like the feeling of being choked.

*Here is the stitch pattern in case your curious:
Cast on odd number of stitches. In this case it was 21.
R1: k1, * yf, slip stitch, yb, k1 * repeat from * end with a k1
R2: purl
R3: k2, * yf, slip stitch, yb, k1 * repeat from * end with a k2
R4: purl

Evenly spaced 2 button holes one inch before bind-off.
