It also means working with yarn is much more pleasant. So, today I took out a skein of yarn and a size K crochet hook. Shortly thereafter, I had a neck warmer. Very easy. Very quick. I used inexpensive yarn from JoAnn’s. But this would be exquisite in an alpaca yarn.
Chain approximately 40–more or less depending on what you need to get comfortably over your head. Slip stitch to join ends. Chain three and double crochet in each chain. Join end by slip stitching to the top of the chain three with which you started the row. Continue adding rows in the same manner until you reach the desired width. (Mine has eight rows.) To add a decorative edge, chain five and slip stitch in each chain in the row. For the last row, chain seven join to middle of first chain five loop with a single crochet; chain three and join to middle of next chain five loop with a single crochet. Continue to end of loops in row. Chain three and slip stitch through second loop from beginning of previous row (second in chain of seven). Finish off.
That’s it! Nothing complicated. I completed mine with a decorative button that is large enough to fit through the pattern.
