The Key Lime Neck Wrap is a pretty accessory that adds a splash of color to a gray day. A simple stitch sequence with a pretty eyelet row is super simple for beginners, but is equally engaging for seasoned crocheters as well. Worked with a large hook, the result is a very quick project that is warm, lofty, and beautiful.

Before sewing the button to your neck wrap, test it first by slipping it through one of the eyelet holes to make sure it is the correct size. Sew button onto the bottom corner (as shown below) and weave in any ends.
Check out all the ways to wear your neck wrap…try spinning it around with the button in the back for a cowl/turtle neck look. Or, wear it with the button in the center for a collar-like shoulder wrap.
