ALPACA WARMER

A very simple knit for a beginner.
This fancy looking neck warmer looks great worn over a regular shirt or a fancy outfit!

Wear it at work when your neck gets cold but don't want to wear a scarf, wear it over that boat neck shirt you love so much, and make sure to bring it out on the town!  I've had so many compliments on mine, so be careful, everyone is gonna want you to knit them one!
