Here's a picture of the style I was going for. This one is for sale on Etsy. This is not me or my neck warmer. She has a lovely neck and warmer so I thought I would share hers with you.
And here is my finished neck warmer modeled by my lovely lamp.
You can wear it open or shut. I love the way it turned out and actually plan on making a navy one next using some vintage sailor buttons I came across. Maybe navy will be next next favorite color
