Here are some of the ones I've found lately:
Always my go-to, J.Crew's marled "snood" - Not really sure what that stands for...scarf / hood? The word doesn't work. But the scarf does! Good weight and length - shorter than most so no need for double looping. Easy to slip on and off for that extra warmth factor. And in a cute marled knit (all over J.Crew this year).

Length is important because you don't want too much of a gap between the 2 loops. There's less warming factor with a gap. Look for weight and chunkiness of knit because these scarves are pretty big and can start weighing down your neck with 2 loops. Not comfy. I'm a fan of lighter weight wools, acrylic blends (stretchy and light), and cashmere even (if you can afford it).
I love the idea of Anthropologie's The Grand Tour Loop's wider knit. But like the review said, kinda intimidated by the largeness of it. Yet it looks super cosy (whoa, are we British now?) I love the silvery white for winter!

Mmm, this ModCloth number makes me think of strawberry cream cheese. Did I eat breakfast yet?

Now the biggest question is, how many is too many and what colors? What's your must have winter accessory?
