I’ve been wanting something to protect my face when the wind gets icy. I finally bought some bulky wool and made this…


My ravelry project post is here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/RebeccaLisaB/cozy-cabled-neckwarmer–face-shield

Pattern is as follows:

with 29″ 5mm circular needles and elann.com’s Peruvian Highland Bulky wool in Coffee Bean Brown http://www.elann.com/commerce.web/product.aspx?catID=&id=123684

Cast on 110 stitches using long tail cast on. Join into round.

round 1, 2, 4, 5: *k4, p2, k2, p2* repeat around

round 3: *slip 2 to cable needle, hold to front, k2, k2 from cable needle, p2, k2, p2* repeat around

round 6: *k4, p2, slip 1 and hold to front between pointer finger and thumb, slip one to right needle, slip stitch held to front back onto left needle, slip stitch from right needle back to left needle, k2, p2* repeat around

repeat rounds 1-6 until work measures 8″
