This neck warmer has an interesting construction technique. It’s twisted in the first row and then you just keep crocheting in an infinity pattern. No turning. No seams. Just round and round. That makes it work up very quickly. Like my other 1-1 patterns, you can make it this afternoon and give it as a gift tonight!
This is a Mobius scarf. Check out the properties on Wikipedia. The easiest way to explain how you’ll be crocheting this is take a strip of paper and give it a half twist so the top of one end connects to the bottom of the other.
That’s how you’ll be crocheting this neckwarmer. All along the edges without turning. Your starting chain will end up in the center of your scarf.
You’ll be starting with a foundation single crochet. If you haven’t done this before,here is a video on how to do it. I really like using foundation single crochet stitches on a cowl or neck warmer because it’s easier to join without getting it all twisted!
I added the contrasting color along the border to show off the Mobius design. The neck warmer looks great without it, but I think the border makes it more interesting!
What You’ll Need:
- 140 yards of worsted weight yarn. I used Cascade Avalon.
- A small amount of a contrasting yarn if you’d like to add the border
- A Button
- Crochet Hook Size J (6.0 mm)
- Yarn Needle to weave in ends
- 3 1/2 clusters and 10 rows = 4”
- My finished project measured 7” tall by 10” wide (20” circumference)
- fsc = foundation single crochet
- ss = slip stitch
- ch = chain
- sc = single crochet
- st = stitch
- sk = skip
- sp = space
- Fsc 80. If you’d like to change the width of the neck warmer, fsc a multiple of 4
- Straighten chain, and make a ½ twist connecting the top of one end with the bottom of the other. Join with a ss.
- Round 1 – ch 1. 2 sc in same st as ss. ch 2, 2 sc in next st. *sk 2 st, 2 sc in next. ch 2, 2 sc in next st.* Repeat all the way around. When you get to the beginning, continue on other side of fsc.
- Round 2 – (2 sc, ch 2, 2 sc) in each ch-2 sp. Continue around.
- Round 3 – 7 – Repeat round 2
- At end of round 7 ss to 1st sc in next group. Join contrasting color with ss to any sc.
- Border round 1 – ch 1. sc in each sc and each ch around. ss to 1st
- Border round 2 – Repeat border round 1
Finish off. Weave in ends. Sew on button.
