Jo Sharp Shoulder Warmer

I am proud to finally show you my completed Shoulder Warmer! There was a long delay last year due to my injured hand but I am glad I finally manage to complete it ... The pattern is actually quite easy and straightforward using Rib stitch, suitable for a beginner like me.

The shoulder warmer was done using Jo Sharp "Rare Comfort Kid Mohair" yarn in Colour 610 Millet (about 3 balls of 25g in total).

1 pair 6mm needles
Cast on 46 stitches
Row 1 Knit 2, Purl 2; repeat to end
Row 2 Knit all the Purl stitches and Purl all the Knit stitches of the previous row
Repeat pattern Row 1 & 2 until it measures about 110cm or as suitable to fit around yourself
Cast off

Making Up
With the right side facing each other, join the ends along the Cast Off and Cast On edges using the edge to edge stitch (invisible seam).

Have fun knitting it too!
