Knitted neck cozy

The cold weather is back with a vengeance, it was -11 this morning when we left for a basketball tournament. To combat these frigid temps I knit Dancer this simple neck cozy. I saw a picture of a fancy one of these in a magazine and thought I can do that only with an easier pattern. To make this cast on 72 stitches. Knit the first row. All other rows, knit 2 purl 2 to make ribbing. Just keep going until it is the desired length. This one was knit on straight needles and sewed together. It would be even easier knit in a round. This is so versatile.
As a neck cozy just fold down like a turtle neck.

Pull it up for a head band

As face mask and it still covers the neck

The perfect hat for a girl with a ponytail.
