One Skein Wonder Neck cowl
This neck warmer is made using only one skein of yarn, making it quick and easy. It is also made in rows and then seamed in a tubular fashion. Allowing for the neck warmer to gather close to your neck for superior warmth. There’s no fussing with getting it to sit right, as it just drapes comfortably at the base of your neck.
This One Skein Wonder Neck Warmer/Cowl is my contribution to Cre8tion Crochet.
Want a PDF print version of this pattern? You can now get it for a small fee. Why a fee? While I want to provide as many free patterns for you as possible (I will have some paid patterns here and there), I’d also like to monetize my blog (I’m being honest here) and thus creating a small income for myself so that I can continue providing more free patterns.
- Red Heart Stellar, #6 Super Bulky, 90 yds. Samples shown in colors: Quark and Star.
- Hook: 10mm
- Notions: Needles for weaving in ends
- When finished cowl will measure approximately 16” x 11” (when seamed together)
- Gauge: 1dc row = 1 ¼”; 4dc stitches = 2 ¼”
- Only one size for this pattern. Gauge is not important.
Ch – chain; st(s) – stitch(es); sk – skip; sp(s) – space(s); sc – single crochet; dc – double crochet;
Special Pattern Notes:
- Chains at the beginning of each row will count as stitches.
- Always place your last dc in 3rd chain of turning chain, which will be referred to as “last st” in directions.
- You can make your neck warmer longer or shorter if you’d like; just make your last row ending with a row 3 or row 5.
- This pattern is worked in rows not rounds. You will bring your sides together and seam it together to create a tubed neck warmer.
