Free neck warmer PATTERN
The free Baby Neck Warmer pattern can easily be adapted to make bigger neck warmers. This one is for a full grown gentleman with a rather wide neck. I cast on 66 sts with 3mm needles, for each “flap” , increased 1 st in each side, as stated in the pattern so there are 66+66+2+2 = 136 sts in the collar itself.
A crochet cardigan
A very nice woman gave me this, many years ago: The back and one front piece were finished, and the second one was about 1/3 done. There is not pattern to follow. I’m going to finish this now. The second front piece is almost done, it’s very quick work and it is easy to follow the shape of the first one. The crochet pattern is pretty, but a bit to sweet for me, for a whole sweater. I’m thinking about combining knitting and crochet. Ribbed sleeves, pockets, and collar – if I have enough yarn that is. I have no idea what brand of yarn this is. It feels like wool and it’s not very soft.
Perhaps the combination will be hideous, what do you think?
