As I was re-making my wimple yesterday, the tube reached a length that was perfect for a neck warmer! I've had long below-the-shoulder length hair for many, many years, and in September had it cut above my shoulders. Since the cool weather arrived, I've noticed my neck is cold. So, after finishing the wimple, I made this So Simple Cowl Neck Warmer based on Dot's So Simple Wimple pattern (follow Dot's pattern but make only enough rows around to fit your neck, instead of your whole head and neck). I used an M hook, started with 71 chains, and with an L hook added a picot edging on each tube end.
Enjoys crocheting, gardening, cats, NASCAR (especially Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch!), reading, photography, snorkeling in Kailua-Kona with sea turtles, Sizzler's Mega Bacon Cheeseburgers, hot and iced decaf coffee, dark chocolate, color (yarn, fabric), playing around with web technologies - not necessarily in that order! Still very much a beginner with quilting, knitting, and sewing. Donates crocheted lap blankets.
Married to Bill. Son Greg and daughter-in-law Lauren live in Oregon. Stepson Billy, daughter-in-law Rowena, and grandson Branden are in Maui, Hawaii. Stepson Bryan and daughter-in-law Britt live in the Bay Area.
