Easy Crochet Neck Warmer Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

This easy crochet Neck Warmer pattern is perfect for wearing as an alternative to a scarf, or cowl this winter. It fits nicely around the neck and can be tucked under the collar of your winter coat. There is not a lot of extra material to deal with as it is designed to keep the chill off the neck, without being bulky.

The pattern includes instructions to make this neckwarmer in sizes small child (3-5 years), child (6-10 years), adult and adult large.

I have also included instructions in the Notes section to help you make the neck warmer in other sizes.

Slip Knot and Starting Chain

Notes:

  • When I work into the foundation chain, I prefer working into the back bar (back bump) of the chain. You can work under the back loop only if you prefer.
  • To add approximately one inch of height, increase the starting chain by 4. You can always fold this over to make it more of a turtleneck style.
  • To increase the width (circumference) repeat R2 as many, or as few, times as you wish; 6 rows is approximately 4 inches.
  • To make the edging longer (to have more fabric to tuck in), increase to 5 dc sets in R3 and R4, 6 dc sets in R5 and R6…until you reach your desired length.
