I’ve been making a lot of neck warmers lately.
I realized that my yarn stash is absolutely out of control. I’m overrun with single or partial balls of yarn that are leftover from other projects, found in bargain bins at high end yarn stores, or bought by the bagful at Goodwill.
Because of my multiplying yarn stash, I’m always on the lookout for things I can make with a ball of yarn or less. Well I’ve recently latched onto neck warmers and can’t get enough!
I’ve had a lot of fun making these up. There are so many and unique ways to finish and embellish them! I’m a big fan of keeping them fairly simple with just a few buttons, but you could do a lot of fun things with lace trim, ribbon accents, crochet flowers or pom-poms… You name it!
This pattern is super simple, perfect for the beginner, or even for the more advanced crocheter who wants to make a finished gift in under an hour.
You could make this with an extra bulky yarn, but I really like to make it with two strands of yarn held together. This way, you can play around with color and texture combinations. For instance, I like to pair a standard yarn with an extra soft or otherwise texturally-interesting yarn.
Have fun and let me know if you have any questions!
