This jeweled neck warmer doesn't have any buttons on it, but it was inspired by a stoll through the button aisle at my local JoAnn craft store. I was enthralled by a two-part jeweled closure I found there amidst all the buttons. I thought the closure looked like jewelry, with its subtly sparkly faux gems, but it could have been used in so many different ways. I had a hard time deciding what to make, but decided in the end to go with this neck warmer.
I'm pretty happy with how the neck warmer turned out. For one thing, crochet projects don't get much simpler than this one is; it's made using basic stitches and is easy enough for a total beginner who's never crocheted before.
Also, I love the cheerful red color, and I'll be excited to wear it with my fall / winter coat, which is black wool; my mostly-black wardrobe could use a jolt of color, and this is just what I needed. Of course, if you'd like to crochet one of these neck warmers, please feel free to make it in a different color if you prefer. I've included the free crochet pattern on our website, and I invite you to give it a try if you'd like.
These make quick gifts; you could make one for each of the ladies on your fall / winter birthday or holiday gift list.Related Resources:
