This pattern really is super-simple and is perfect for beginners, but it's a little more interesting than just plain garter stitch or 1x1 rib. I created it as a transportable-and-don't-need-to-concentrate piece. It can be easily altered in both width and length to fit any neck. Another good thing is that it's reversible, so it looks the same on both sides.
