I had Miss 6 year old at home sick with a cough and runny nose earlier this week so I made up this little kids neck warmer knitted scarf to help her stay warm where it matters to help her get over her cold.
Using some size 4mm knitting needles I simply cast on 12 stitches with some left over yarn from my stash. Then using garter stitch I knitted up about 80 rows as I only wanted it to be a short scarf to cover her neck and chest. I stretched a whole in the middle near one of the ends to correspond with a crochet flower and button I had sewn onto the scarf.
The stretched hole in the knitting then worked as a button hole for the button and flower to do up through to help hold the scarf snugly around my daughters neck.
I think the neck warmer has done the trick and her cough is a lot better. It’s a very easy and quick project to try. Anyone keen to give it a go?
