I wanted to line my neckwarmer, but this is absolutely optional. If you want, you can simply weave in in the yarn ends, sew on your buttons and be done. If you wish to line yours too, read on.
I washed and dried my fabric which is a super soft flannel since it will be up against neck skin. Next, I laid my finished scarf on top and started to cut around it. Then I realized bad things were going to happen when I accidentally cut my scarf so I traced around it and cut along the lines.
I pinned my fabric to the back of my neckwarmer, turning the edges under about 1/4". I hand sewed the fabric to the warmer using a simple whip stitch. Be sure to leave your button holes free or you will have to make button holes in your fabric as well. HUGE pain in the... well, you know.
Sew on your buttons, and weave in your loose yarn ends and presto chango!
A warm snuggly neck warmer!
