I really do no like scarves. A neck gaiter, basically a continuos cylinder of fabric that you slip over your head and onto your neck, works much better for me. I can pull it up over my head like a hood or pull it up over my mouth or nose for extra cold protection.
I had this red (itchy) wool yarn hanging around for the longest time. I have no idea where I got it from or the brand. I only know it's wool. It was not a lot of yarn so I had a hard time figuring out what to use it for. It was, however, just enough to make a nice sized gaiter. I love how this yarn has flecks of orange in it and it leant itself well to the 3x3 rib pattern. A quick and easy knit with great results. I am going to treat it with some hair conditioner to make it softer/less itchy (hopefully it works). I can't wait to wear it.
