Patternum Gratis: Tiffany Neckwarmer

Just for fun and to test out some layouts I was playing around with, I have created a pattern for what was formerly, and creatively, named "Neckwarmer Kerchief Thing". Based on some of the comments I got, I have renamed it "Tiffany Neckwarmer", after the blue of the yarn, which resembles the color of those pretty little bags you get when you buy something really, really fancy.

Pattern: Tiffany Neckwarmer (click here to download if you don't have a Ravelry account)
Yarn requirements: 80 yards of special-to-you aran weight yarn. Other yarns can easily be substituted - calculate the number of stitches to cast on based on your yarn's gauge, and knit to the measurements specified in the pattern.
Needles: US 8 (5mm), straight (14") or circular
Gauge: 15 sts/22 rows = 4" in Stockinette

I designed this little neckwarmer because I had a very little amount (less than 80 yards) of some beautiful Malabrigo Angora that I bought as a souvenir. It is knit into a trapezoid, then cinched in on the sides. Instead of tying it (didn't have enough yarn to make it long enough to tie!), you sew on snaps to fasten it.

I hope you enjoy! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
