Even if you’re not working on gift knitting right now, it seems like this time of year with its hurried atmosphere is great for quick knitting projects. And because you’ve probably just dropped a lot of coin on holiday gifts, projects that use a small amount of yarn are great choices for your budget as well.
This cable knit neckwarmer from Margot at Eye of Style uses just a skein of yarn, and the yarn called for costs about $8.50. It’s a colorful little luxury that would make any neck happy this time of year.
It’s a pretty quick pattern, too, as its just a little rectangle with buttonholes on one side. Sew on some funky buttons and you’ll have a piece with tons of personality without a lot of effort.
