Crochet Pattern: Hearty Neckwarmer

By Claire Ortega-Reyes – 5 Comments
Make sure you don’t go cold on Valentine’s day (or any other day, for that matter). This little neckwarmer features a row of hearts. It can also be worn as a headband, or made longer for a scarf or sash. Worked in one piece, it is crocheted in rows from one tip to another, so it’s a cinch to adjust the length; just make more pattern repeats.
Skill Level: crochet skill level easy

Finished Size: 32″ long x 3″ wide

65 Yards Medium Weight Yarn
Crochet Hook J (6.00 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

Gauge: Not important

    I have some “I Love This Yarn!” Cranberry Stripe that I’m going to try out for this pattern. It should be really cute.

    I love this but think it will be warmer if it was done in all single crochets. Can you convert this pattern for me? Thanks so much.
