Check out this super cute and speedy neck warmer! Made with bulky weight yarn, this project is cozy, full of texture and SO easy! I used less than one skein of Lion Brand Hue + Me yarn which is amazing because you know I love a one skein project. Looking for the free pattern? Find all the details below…

Yarn needle
Scissors

Pattern:
Begin with CH 56 and begin row 1 in the 2nd CH from your hook.

Rows 1-3:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across, place 1 HDC. CH 1 and turn.

(55 HDC stitches)

Rows 4-14:
Into the first stitch *place 1 SS. Into the next stitch, place 1 HDC*. Repeat from * to * 26 more times. Place 1 SS into the last stitch, CH 1 and turn for all rows.

(28 SS, 27 HDC stitches = 55 stitches)

Rows 15-17:
Repeat rows 1-3. After competing row 3, do not CH 1 and turn. Fasten off and leave a long tail for seaming (approx. 30 inches)

(55 HDC stitches)

Seaming:
Bring your two short ends together (photo A) and seam using the method of your choosing. I weaved my yarn tail back and forth, under the stitches and fastened off on the other end (photo B) of the neck warmer. You could also SS with your hook to seam. When you have finished seaming, fasten off and weave in all ends. While both sides of this neck warmer have a similar look, I like to have the two ridges from the HDC rows facing out.

Great job! Your Cute and Cozy Neck Warmer is complete! Check out these lovely versions crocheted by my talented testers!
