FREE CROCHET PATTERN: Ladies Button Neckwarmer



www.RAKJpatterns.com, FREE crochet pattern, neckwarmer, cowl, crochet


What you need:
Size 5.0 crochet hook
Vanna’s Choice yarn
3 small buttons
Sewing needle and thread

Gauge:
4inches =11 stitches and 13 rows.

Legend:
Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (sl st)
Single Crochet (sc)
Double Crochet (dc)





How to create the cluster stitch:
Yarn over, push your hook through the stitch, yarn over and pull back through (like you would start for a dc).
Yarn over and pull the yarn through the first 2 loops on your hook.
You should have 2 loops remaining on your hook.
Yarn over, push your hook through the SAME stitch, yarn over and pull back through. You should have 3 loops on your hook. 
Yarn over and pull through the first 2 loops.
You should have 2 remaining on hook.
Yarn over and pull through the last two loops. 
Cluster complete.

To begin:
Chain 41 (you can shorten your neckwarmer by using less chains and make it longer by adding)
Row 1: Turn, sc across the row.
Row 2: Turn, Ch 3, cluster in the next stitch and in each across.
Row 3: Turn, Ch 1, sc across the row.
Row 4: Repeat row 2.
Row 5: Repeat row 3.
Row 6: Repeat row 2.
Row 7: Repeat row 3. Fasten off.

One each short side of panel:
Row 1: Join yarn on one corner, using ends of rows as a stitch, sc across.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc across.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc across.
Row 4: Ch 1, turn, sc across.
This should give you a good edge.

Sew the 3 small buttons on to the edge: one on each corner, about 1 inch in, and then one in the middle.


You should be able to slip the button through the sc if your gauge is the same as above.
