Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A scarf, cowl or neck warmer is one of the simplest and quickest things that you can knit. Whatever your skill level and however little spare time you have, Fiona Goble has a project for you. She has designed 36 scarves, cowls, and neck-warmers with something for everyone, from a snake scarf to a sparkly evening capelet, and from an extra-long "preppie" scarf to a cowboy-style bandana for kids. Every project has full instructions for knitting and making up, but most will need little more than the sewing on of a button to finish them off, and some can be knitted in an evening. An added bonus is that many of the projects require only one or two balls of yarn, enabling you to use up your stash of leftovers from other projects.

Includes index.
