Beginner’s Easy Crochet Neck Scarf Pattern

Easy Crochet Neck Warmer Pattern for Beginners
Easy Crochet Neck Warmer Pattern for Beginners

This short but sweet jeweled neck scarf 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 delighted by a two-part jeweled closure I found there among 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 would also love to try turning this type of closure into actual jewelry, like maybe a beaded crochet necklace with little pearls…

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. I’ll be excited to wear it with my black wool winter coat; my mostly-black wardrobe could use a jolt of color, and this feminine design is just the sort of accent piece that it needs. 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 winter birthday or holiday gift list.
