The Georgia Gaiter is designed to be stylish and warm, perfect for cold weather wear. It is knit in the round from the bottom up using worsted weight yarn and size US 8 (5.00mm) circular knitting needles.
The pattern is written for an adult large size but has instructions for modifying to whatever size you want.
If you would like to support my designs, there is a printable version of the pattern available in my Ravelry.
i used my Georgia Pines worsted weight yarn to knit my version and it came out beautiful. Any of the worsted weight yarns in my collection would fit this pattern beautifully. Check them out here.
