Issue 9 of Knit on the Net went live a couple of weeks ago, and I have an article about the Knitting Reference Library, a couple of book reviews and  most excitingly, a pattern too!

This neck warmer was inspired by a pub discussion about the perfect scarf / neck warmer which could keep your face, neck and décolletage warm in one garment. It uses the Roman Rib stitch pattern to create stretch and texture. Knitted flat, it fastens with 23 buttons which can be done up all the way for protection against icy winds or alternatively some buttons can be left open to create a collar, as seen in the picture. It can be worn with or without a coat, in place of a scarf and is a unisex pattern. Although fitting much like a cowl around the neck, the ribbing pattern allows it to stay in place.

Issue 10, The Comfort Issue has lots of other stuff to read and includes some really good patterns: go take a look.

    I will have to take a look at that pattern. It is so pretty and looks really comfy.
    Still have a cardigan, a scarf and another cardigan to finish though before I can even consider such frivolities.

      Hello Arianna,
      I’m so glad that you like Venta! The original has been keeping me warm this winter very well.
      As you have seen, the knitonthenet website is currently running a skeleton service, but it is being rebuilt to enable us to offer a far better, more interactive and dynamic site. The patterns will start to be available on the knitonthenet shop to download very soon, so do keep checking back there. I’m afraid that I don’t know yet exactly when that will be for Venta, but it might be worth signing up for the knitonthenet newsletter which will be the best place to find out 🙂
