Just as the first hints of fall are in the air, here is the Butternut Squash Crochet Neckwarmer! Crocheted with a simple but beautiful V stitch sequence, and with a lovely button enclosure, this is a fabulous and lightning fast project that you can have finished before the first autumn leaf falls from the tree. Make one for yourself and several for others as we approach gift making season!
- N (9.0 mm) Crochet Hook
- 106 yards of super bulky weight yarn (I used 1 Skein Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick Solids in the “Butterscotch” colorway)
- 2 Buttons (Note: this neckwarmer does not have button holes, it uses the lacy holes in the garment as button holes. When selecting your buttons be sure they will comfortably fit through the holes before sewing them on.
- Tapestry Needle
- Ruler or tape measure
- Width-6.5 inches
- Length-the neck warmer pictured is 26 inches long. If you need yours to be a bit longer, just work extra rows as needed until desired length is reached.
Foundation Row: In the 4th chain from the hook, work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. *Skip two chains and work dc, ch 1, dc in the same ch. Repeat from * to end, then in the last ch, work 1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc in the same ch.
Row 1: Turn, ch 3 and work dc, ch 1, dc in each of the chain 1 spaces from the previous row (center of each “V”). At the end of the row, finish with a dc in the last space (ch 3 turning space).
Repeat row 1 until neck warmer is desired length.
