Crochet Something He Might Actually Wear On Those Cold Windy Winter Days!

As a crocheter, I love to make gifts for people I care about. But I'll be honest, my husband is the most frustrating person to crochet for. He's one of those guys who never "needs" anything. He's impossible to shop for too! But luckily, one thing he does appreciate is clothing that will keep him warm, since he has a long walk from the parking lot to his office every day.

But there again, he's picky! He never has used the scarves I've made for him. He didn't use the earwarmer headband either. But I finally got his approval with this little project! He even picked out his own yarns out of my stash! So I'm very excited to find something he will actually use and enjoy. Who knows – maybe this will be a winner with your favorite guy as well!

When you make your yarn selection, use the "warming" test. Simply hold the yarn in your hands for a minute. Some yarns will create a pronounced warming effect you can feel on your hand. Others won't.

Hope you enjoy crocheting this project! You might even want to make a couple for yourself too!

This pattern is made in a simple single crochet stitch pattern easy enough for just about anyone.

What You Will Need

Crochet Hook Size I or preferred

1 Skein very bulky yarn (such as Homespun weight or thicker)

OR two strands held together of worsted weight very soft fluffy yarns

OR three strands of sport weight yarn held together

For Ron's project, I used three strands of sport weight chenille held together in white, gray and black.

How To Create The Magic!

Measure your dear one's neck and allow about one inch for ease.

Make your starting chain this measurement without stretching the chain at all.

Twist chain one turn and join ends with slip stitch.

Round 1

SC in each chain around. Join with slip stitch to form ring.

Round 2

CH 1, SC in first SC. *DC in next SC. SC in next SC. Repeat from * around, join with sl st to first SC.

Round 3

Ch 1, DC in next SC. SC in next DC. Repeat from * around, join with sl stitch to first stitch.

Round 4

Repeat Round 3.

Round 5

Ch 1, SC in back loop only in each stitch around. Join with sl st to first stitch.

Round 6

Repeat Round 5.

Continue repeating rounds 2-6 in pattern until piece measures about 10" or your desired height. End with Round 6. Fasten off, weave in ends.

A Word About Yarn Selection...

This is one of those made-to-size patterns I love to design where gauge or yarn type is not important! You can make this out of any yarn you like, or any combinations of yarn!
