Sideways garter neckwarmer

This supereasy neckwarmer is a quick knit, requiring no more than a couple of hours. The sideways garter structure can is easier than a nonknitter would think, with just a decrease and an increase that gives it shape. The I-cord border can be substituted with a couple more garter ridges, but do not let yourselves be scared by the I-cord, which is not hard at all to knit.
