Our crochet neck warmer is a great beginner project and works up quickly.  It is a good way to stay warm while skiing, snowboarding or just playing in the snow. Unlike a traditional scarf, you don't have to worry about the scarf tails getting in the way of your activities. Makes a great holiday gift!

Materials and Supplies

Craft Supplies:

  • 2 - 3 oz worsted weight yarn

Craft Instructions

If you need one larger or smaller adjust the number of dc in a row and the number of rows and/or you can use a different size crochet hook.  After you have crocheted 3 or 4 rows, check that your work is approximately 6 1/2" (5") wide. If not, adjust your tension or change your hook size.
