bump (a neck warmer)

The wonderful yarn I was given at my SnB holiday party has already become my new favorite winter accessory. A neck warmer! And boy does it work. I had often thought a scarf was the only way to keep me warm but I was sorely mistaken. Just two balls of Merino have me toasty cozy. I have plans (and yarn) to make more of these snuggly treats, just for me. Here is the pattern so you too can chase the chill with a delicious neck confection. Yummy!

Sadly, I do not have a full photo of 'bump'. It is not a long cowl, you could make it longer if you like.
thanks for visiting!
