Wattle Warmer

Do I get wordplay points for using wattle stitch for a neckwarmer? Get it? Wattle... neck...? HA! I kill me. And NO, I don't actually have a wattle.

What a fun stitch to use with a variegated yarn! The stitch is easy crochet, and doesn't use anything more advanced than a DC. It's a one-row repeat of SC, chain 1, DC all worked into the chain spaces from the previous row. It ends up creating a reversible sawtooth pattern.
