I wanted to make a neck warming device that didn’t have the bulkiness of a scarf but still worked dutifully to keep my neck safe from sneaky gusts of wind that seemed to be able to bypass the guard of any jacket.
SO, I based this neck warmie on a pattern I found, altering it significantly to ensure the length and width were to my desired specifications. I’d also wanted to try this double yarn yellow and purple combination for aaages (both of which I had lying around at home), and this seemed the perfect opportunity.
I used a 1cm gauge crochet hook (which was fun!!), something I don’t tend to do often, so this little beauty is quite chunky. One of the ends comprises a double layer at the back to slip the other end through without having to tie or fasten the warmie together.
