Good thing you asked her! I was thinking fuzzy too, as I just made one. I did a taper, by starting with one stitch, knit 9 rows, inc another st, k 9 rows etc....until 20 stitches, then dec 1 st, k 9 rows, continue this pattern until down to one stitch again...fast, easy, fun! Here it is:
I think you wear this with the thick part around your neck first, then around the back and cross, bring ends over each shoulder to front. I'd show you on my neck but my 63-year old face is just too wrinkly to do it justice.
Show us what you do!
