The beauty of this neck gaiter is its simplicity and versatility.
Worn as designed, it's long enough to pull up over your mouth and nose if needed. You can, of course, knit it to any length you want. The pattern suggests 8". Mine is 8.5".
Fold it in half for an extra thick neck warmer. I wore it this way for fishing on Friday night and it kept me toasty warm.
Doubled up like this, it can also be a headband/ear warmer. Two layers of wool did a excellent job of blocking the cool breeze on Saturday.
If you want more coverage, wear it as an open-topped hat.
I may have to knit another one, so I can wear two at once.
