This One's Keeping Me Warm!

I thought I was prepared for the Winter cold this year with my warm crocheted gloves and mobius scarf. But when our temperatures soared down to -13 actual with -35 wind chills, I learned quickly that they weren't quite enough! There was this one area uncovered, exposed to the biting winds - my face!

I decided to make a neck warmer that was tall enough to go up over my lower face (I have a very short neck!) Then I thought it would be handy to add little "ear hangers" - don't know what else to call them! It's just a little open loop on both sides of the neck warmer that slips over each ear, holding the neck warmer up on your face where you want it when you need to. When you have it pulled down just over your neck area, the "hangers" don't show - they just blend in at the sides.

This neck warmer was made with one of my favorite warm yarns, Red Heart's "Buttercup." It may be a baby yarn, but you can't beat this thick, plushy and ultra soft yarn for making things to keep you warm!

The free made-to-custom-fit pattern is below. You can crochet it up in a couple of hours in time for that next winter outing!

I recently purchased this for myself. It's handy to know how much yarn a given project requires when you're going to be making more than one!


A Word About Yarn & Thread Selection...

You may use different yarns such as scrap yarns or threads with good results! Just make sure to keep them similar in weight and thickness so as not to throw off the pattern.

Let's Make The Magic!

Make a foundation chain the circumference you wish the neck warmer to be at the base. Join without twisting to the first chain.

Round 1:

Chain 1, SC in each chain around. Join with sl st to first SC. Ch 1, turn.

Rounds 2-On:

Chain 1, SC in each SC around. Join with sl st to first SC. Ch 1, turn.

"Ear Hangers"

Before completing the final round, try on the neck warmer. Place a stitch marker where the top center of your ear is.

Do your round as usual until 2 stitches before your stitch marker. Ch 6, skip 3 SC. SC in next and remaining SC's until you arrive at 2 stitches before your second marker. Ch 6, skip 3 SC, SC in all remaining SC. Join with sl st to first SC. Fasten off, weave in ends.

I just picked this up for myself and don't know how I ever lived without it! You can tie on a cord in the holder to wear around your neck or your wrist. The thread feeds so smoothly and never gets dirty! I LOVE this product!!

A Note From Your Designer...

Hi, I'm SheilaSchnauzies, also published as SheilaSparkles, and my life's passion is designing in Crochet! I also love to share gifts with friends, and this pattern is my gift to you! I give away about 95% of my pattern designs free. The other 5% are sold on my pattern store at to benefit the vet expenses of my Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Sheila's Schnauzies.

Just one little favor, please... I would appreciate it if you do not post this pattern anywhere on the Internet or in the 'real world.' Instead, you are most welcome to provide a link to this webpage.

I use a system I call the "Official Schnauzer Difficulty Rating" just for fun, to rate the difficulty of my patterns. If it's a 3/5 or more, I'll explain why I consider it more difficult. A few of my designs use techniques that are a bit unconventional! If it's one of those patterns, I'll warn you ahead of time. I do a lot of custom-fit patterns, for example. They are made to fit YOU, not a measurement from a chart. They're surprisingly easy to do and actually end up fitting. That's a good thing, yes?

So glad you found my patterns! I hope you really enjoy making whatever it is you're making! Crochet hugs, -Sheila
