Retro Neck Band

I joined a holiday season marathon last year.  Who kept me company? My crochet needle, yarn and me! :) Well, it was a crochet marathon featured in my blog post entitled, "Holiday Season Crochet Marathon Part 3."  In this post, I featured some crochet projects which I gave away as gifts. Among the gifts I gave away was the "Retro Neck Band in Manos Silk Blend."

I found the  4-step pattern for this nice and snug neck band from Ravelry as a free download. Very simple and easy-to-make, this neck band could provide warmth during cold weather.

Here is what I made using variegated yarn. I found a stone from an old bracelet and fastened it as button.


Here's how the original Retro Neck Band by Ann Linderhjelm  looks like. 


Well, what are you waiting for? Why don't you try making one yourself?
