Here’s an easy quick knitting neck warmer pattern that’s perfect for anyone who’s cold and want to knit up something quickly. And it’s so simple to knit you’ll want to make more than one. And finally, it’s great for all you beginner knitters out there.
I whipped up a couple of these one night when it was bitterly cold outside. One is used as a neckwarmer and one as a knitted headband to keep my ears and head warm. I didn’t really want to make a full length scarf or anything like that. I just wanted to keep warm without all the extras if you know what I mean and I just love the simplicity and versatility of this simple and easy knitting pattern. Sometimes simple knitting is the best kind of knitting…
For this neck warmer pattern I used Bernat Roving Yarn. I love it. It’s thick and warm and snugly. It knits up quick and they have so many nice colors. I knit it extra wide so that it could be folded in half and doubled up for extra warmth.
Just as a side note this makes a wonderfully easy quick knit gift for someone as well. This Garter stitch neck warmer can be a timeless and simple gift that will be appreciated and loved. Go have some knitting fun and pick out some of your favorite color yarns and get started knitting one or two.

Pattern Notes: You may find it easier to seam up the neck warmer with a different yarn. Roving yarn doesn’t seam up very well and tends to fall apart. Try a worsted weight yarn that closely matches the yarn you used. Of course if you want to try using the roving yarn do give it a try. I did use it for my neck warmer however it did come apart at times.
