Neck Candy

What happens when you design a pattern and use two different types of yarn, which can be worn three different ways?

The lower image shows Cool Stuff by Prism YarnPrism Yarn known for its “glitz and glam” creates an ornate and opulent appearance by adding glitzy, novelty and textured yarns all in one hank of color.  Each yarn is tied together forming one continuous yarn of surprises.  I mixed Cool Stuff with a variety of other glitzy yarns, and marvel at the luxurious combination of sparkle and texture. Both neck adornments were knit using garter stitch.  I plan on adding a crocheted edge to both.

Neck Candy may also be worn as a shawl.
