Romanian folk inspired neck warmer

The inspiration for this neck warmer was a book with traditional Romanian motifs that my grandmother had and I inherited. Among the countless beautiful motifs, I found a simple repetitive one that I thought will create a nice effect. The pattern is free and you can download it from Ravelry.

The neck warmer is worked in the round. I used Romanian Merino as the main color and Heritage as contrast color. It has a tight fit - I wanted it to stay close to the neck and protect it from the cold wind! I hope you will enjoy it!
