Two into one

The first Thorpe hat I made was for Dylan. I used, the sadly discontinued, Rowan Magpie yarn in a gloriously bright shade of blue.

There was a little left over and neck warmers have been on my mind. I lost an evening on Ravelry, there are a lot of neck warmer patterns out there. Eventually, feeling overwhelmed by choice, I decided to make my own. I took my inspiration from the lovely Tudora pattern by Cheryl at Simple Yarn, I wanted something similarly neat fitting.

It is just a rectangle of ridge stitch with a nice big button. It took no time at all and I love how it sings against my orangey red dress.

One skein equals two accessories, goodness, I feel positively thrifty.
