On The Double Neck Warmer (Free Pattern)

12Shares

Crochet neck warmer projects are great to work on because they can often be made with just one skein! That means a quick and portable project which we all love once in awhile.

As of July 5th, 2023 I’m happy to share that this design is now available for free here on my blog! Originally published in April 2021 as a “paid only pattern”, I have updated this design to be in-line with my current pattern format. The ad-free, printer friendly .PDF versions are still available in my Etsy and Ravelry shop and have also been updated.

Notes:
– This pattern is written in US terms (find a stitch conversion chart here)
– Gauge (2 inches x 2 inches = rows 1-4 in height, 8 DC across)
– Turning CH 1 or 2 does not count as a stitch throughout the pattern
– Special stitch tutorials are included below
– The finished neck warmer seamed and with edges, measures approximately 14 ½ inches in length and 9 inches wide (lying flat)
– If you would like to extend the length, simply continue the repeat until you reach your desired size before seaming the edges. Please note this will increase the yardage required
– This pattern is named for how quickly it works up and the stitches used within it. A speedy project with a simple but enjoyable repetition

Materials Needed:
– Approximately 239 yards of worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Roll With It Mélange in the Paparazzi colourway
– 5mm hook (I used my Furls Streamline Ebony)
– Yarn needle
– Scissors (these are my favourite!)
– Measuring Tape (I love this one)

Stitches:
CH – Chain
SS – Slip Stitch
SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
DC– Double Crochet
FPDC – Front Post Double Crochet
BPDC – Back Post Double Crochet

Special Stitch Tutorials:
Front Post Double Crochet –
Yarn over, insert your hook from the front of the row between stitch posts. Work your hook behind the post of next stitch and back out the other side of the post (towards you). Yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook). Yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook. Yarn over, pull through last 2 remaining loops on hook.

Back Post Double Crochet – Yarn over, insert your hook from the back of the row between stitch posts. Work around the front of the post, returning to the back of the row. Yarn over and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook). Yarn over, pull through 2 loops on hook. Yarn over, pull through last 2 remaining loops on hook.

Working In The 3rd Loop of HDC – For this pattern, the 3rd loop is found at the back of the stitch but will be facing you when you need to work into it. It is below the traditional “V” shape found at the top of the stitch. See photo below:


Pattern:
Begin by chaining 33. Row 1 will start in the 2nd CH from your hook.

Row 1:
Into the first stitch and each stitch across, place 1 HDC. CH 2 and turn.

(32 HDC stitches)

Row 2:
Into the 3rd loop of each HDC stitch across, place 1 DC. CH 2 and turn.

(32 DC stitches)

Row 3:
Into each of the first 2 stitches, place 1 DC. *Place 1 FPDC into the next stitch. Place 1 DC into each of the next 2 stitches*. Repeat from * to * 9 more times. CH 2 and turn.

(22 DC stitches, 10 FPDC stitches = 32 stitches)

Row 4:
Into each of the first 2 stitches, place 1 DC. *Place 1 BPDC into the next stitch. Place 1 DC into each of the next 2 stitches*. Repeat from * to * 9 more times. CH 1 and turn.

(22 DC stitches, 10 BPDC stitches = 32 stitches)

Rows 5-60:
Repeat rows 1-4 (14 times)

At this point before seaming and the addition of edging, your neck warmer should measure approximately 27 ½ inches in length and 9 inches in width. If you would like to extend the length of your project, continue the row 1-4 repetition until you reach your desired size.

Seaming:
Leaving a long tail (approximately 20 inches in length), cut your yarn and fasten off. Bring your two short ends together for joining. Please use your preferred method of seaming (I like using the invisible seam, tutorial here).

Edging:
Make sure that your work has the right side facing out (texture is visible). Starting at the back of your work (where the seam is), join your yarn with a SS and CH 1 into one edge of the neck warmer. Evenly place 1 SC all the way around. SS into the top of the beginning CH 1. Fasten off and repeat for the second edge. Weave in all ends.


My fantastic testers told me they enjoyed working on this pattern and found the repeat to be enjoyable and relaxing. You can check out the beautiful versions that they made below:

Aren’t they pretty? Such great makes for market prep, gift giving or keeping yourself cozy on chilly days. I hope you enjoy this pattern!
