Here’s how it works.

Another great alternative to a scarf, or cowl this winter is my Going Granny Neck Warmer. This simple granny stitch neck warmer is lightweight and it fits nicely around the neck. It 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 some of the chill off the neck, without being bulky. If you are looking for a more solid version, the Easy Crochet Neck Warmer Pattern (free) features a double crochet rib stitch and does not have the gaps between the stitches.

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:

  • Multiple of 4+3 (plus 2 for the turning chain) (Understanding Stitch Multiples)
  • 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.
  • To increase the width (circumference) repeat R2 and R3 as many, or as few, times as you wish. 3 rows is approximately 2 inches.
  • For the joining of the two edges, if it is easier for you, you can whip stitch the 2 edges together and then rejoin your yarn in the side edge of the stitches to add the edging.
  • 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.
