I have just finished testing a crochet pattern for a very talented young designer - Laura Tegg of Lolly's CC (lollys crafty crochet). See her other designs on Ravelry.
It can be either a neck-warmer or a scarf & is really lovely! If made into a neck-warmer, Laura has given instructions on how to make a lovely crocheted rose button with which to fasten it. The pattern has clearly written instructions with a step by step photo tutorial & I highly recommend it!
So here is my version of the neck-warmer, hope you like it! --------
