I am not a huge fan of scarfs and I know several people who feel the same way. I wanted an alternative of something that will keep your neck warm without the bulk of a scarf. I found this idea for a neck cuff in one of my pattern books. I knitted one up to match a hat that I already made and I have to say that I love it! I tried it on and it does feel cozy on my neck. It’s like a turtleneck sweater, but without the rest of the sweater. LOL I will definitely make several more of these. They knit up pretty quickly.
