Winter chill is in the air but this flowery crochet neck warmer pattern will having you dreaming of spring days. From the lacy stitches to the delicate petals on the ties, this is one accessory that fills the void between winter and spring fashions perfectly. I’ve also included pattern notes to easily adjust the length to turn it into an infinity scarf making it perfectly and uniquely yours.
Cowls and neck warmers are quick, easy projects to crochet as they typically work up in an evening or two. The pattern on this cowl changes every round keeping the piece fresh and interesting to make. You’ll want to be familiar with making shells, clusters, cross-stitches and working in the 3rd loop of a half-double crochet. Each stitch is explained in the pattern or pattern notes. Since everyone’s style is slightly different I’ve included some notes for modifying the look of this design. Look for those in the “Additional Notes” section.

Sew a pearl in the center of the petals if you wish, for added decoration.
