For the Cabin Fever Retreat I'm working on a top down project that you could get done over the weekend. Here are my ideas for a top down neck cozy. It still has scoop neck shaping and raglan increases. But I think you could make it like this, jazz it up with some lace and wear it under your coat. A small adult top down project in Aran weight wool. Quick, fun and interesting!
You could button up the collar and have a turtleneck for extra warmth. I do love the Corona lace pattern on the bottom. The collar is in feather and fan lace.
This one has the beginning of a shawl collar but I ran out of wool. I think the body could be longer still (if I have a second ball) for a caplet. I know I have 2 balls of something around here I could use to try that out!  What do you think?


  1. I love it!
    What a handy little piece! My neck is always cold unless I wear a turtleneck shirt. This is just the perfect thing.

  2. I love it, although I have a preference for neck thingies to go all the way up to my ears to keep out the cold. This is a great use for a skein of aran-weight and great practise at short rowing. Perfect for teaching. The shawl collar is very similar to the one on my Brookline.
