Winter Neck Warmer

Here is the pattern for a neck warmer I made for my mother. She wanted something to keep her warm since scarves are dangerous when skiing.

Winter Neck Warmer
Size G crochet hook
160 yds of worseted wieght yarn-I used a thick and thin yarn by Himalayas the Queensland Collection. I used a smaller hook so that the stiches would be smaller, tight, and warm.
yarn needle

Chain 31
Turn and sc 30 stiches
Turn and sc in each stitch across in the back loops only thorughout (you can pull through both loops but it would not create the ribbed look)
Repeat until desired length. then sew 2 ends together this is worked from short end to short end then sewn together to for the circle.
The final meaurements was a circumference of 21 inches and a width of 6 inches.
It is wide so it can cover the mouth and nose because that is how my mother wanted it to be wide. Except I would wear it folded down if I wore a neck warmer. the width and length can be changed accordingly.

I hope she likes it!

I like it. I was working with some yarn and it isn't enough for a scarf but I can make it a neck warmer. Thanks for the post.

this is a very good idea---I have been looking for something for my 9 year old that wouldn't have "ends hanging" and this would definitely work! Glad I found this!!!
