"If you are anything like me and find long scarves kind of annoying because you are always adjusting them, try this recipe for a cozy and cute Neckie! Say goodbye to scarves and embrace these hip little warmers perfect for icy winter days and staying warm on the ski slopes. They are also perfect for transitioning into spring with lighter layers."
