So Simple Cowl Neck Warmer - Purple

| 2 Comments


Size: 13 inches wide x 9 inches long
Colors: Dark Plum (Red Heart TLC Essentials)
Pattern: A shorter tube than the So Simple Wimple by Dot at bythehook
Hook: M, L for edging
Date: December 2005

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.

like your idea. btw, how many oz did you use for your neckwarmer? and what kind of yarn did you use?

Hi, Jinky - I used less than 1 5-oz or 6-oz skein of Red Heart TLC Essentials, which is a worsted weight yarn - although you can use any yarn (soft yarn is great for around the neck!).
