Chhhhanges – Pattern Reboot!
Introducing the Izzy Neckwarmer Reboot! I decided to re-crochet (is that a thing) the original Izzy Neckwarmer and I’m so glad I did!
The Izzy Neckwarmer is a relatively easy pattern to work on. Matter of fact, it’s so easy that I was able to re-crochet the pattern in one sitting while catching up on Call the Midwife. Any fans? I absolutely love that show!
I’ve been wanting to do some pattern reboots, if you will, of some of my older designs and decided to start with the Izzy Neckwarmer. So, what changes are there in this reboot? Well, for one thing, the pattern is much cleaner and better written so you can understand it easier. Side note: it’s amazing how we all grow in our experience and knowledge when we learn how to do something and stick with it for a while. In addition to cleaning up the pattern, I also made a few changes to it. The original design had you working into the back loops and front loops in some rows, now the reboot has you working the front post and back post double crochets in some rows. That slight change adds texture and depth to the design
I also chose to make the design in a different yarn because I couldn’t find Red Heart Boutique Twilight in the store. I believe it’s a discontinued yarn, though, so it all works out. But, I’d imagine that any super bulky yarn will work. The yarn I chose is Lion Brand’s Hometown USA in Aspen Tweed. The Izzy Neckwarmer only takes one skein of yarn, so it’s a quick working project.
This Izzy Neck Warmer was inspired by a fictional book character named Izzy of the Chronicles of Izzy series by Michelle Graves. I love that series and that character, she is such an incredible woman who seriously kicks butt.
I have to add that this neck warmer was originally designed as part of a book release giveaway that was for the first book release of the Chronicles of Izzy, See How She Runs. The author asked for an original piece. This design is what I came up with. I was not paid for the design, as this was a donation on my part.
This is an incredibly simple and easy neck warmer that you can whip up in a matter of just an hour or two. It sits comfortably close to your neck and buttons up for closure. With the use of Red Heart Boutique Twilight in Lapis, the neck warmer feels soft against your skin and will provide great warmth on a blistery cold day or evening.
