The broken rib is easy to memorize and makes distinct paths of knit stitches so it's easy to figure out what row you're on. The garter rows break up the sections for a fun and visual stitches sections. The broken rib is so squishy and makes Comfy Cozy the perfect accessory for cool weather.
Comfy Cozy is an excellent design for a solid or tonal yarn in your stash but a multi-color option is great too! Comfy Cozy take approximately ~870 yards of fingering weight yarn, perfect for a two skein project.
The yarn that was used for the sample is Greenwood Fiberworks Gold Dust, a merino, nylon, and stellina blend that is soft enough to wrap around my neck. I would suggest any fingering weight yarn you are comfortable wearing around your neck. I had testers knit the pattern in a solid and a lightly variegated so there are lots of options!
