This polo neckwarmer pattern may look difficult to make, but it really is so easy. Worked in rows from chin to chest it fans out to sit beautifully on the shoulders.
I worked this one in TLC Amore and it's so soft. I used a 4.5mm hook, but use a hook size which gives you the following gauge.
Gauge : 16st X 14 rows = 4 inches over single crochet in back loop only. It works out about 15 inches around the neck. Comfy but not tight. Add more rows to fit a larger neck
The whole polo neckwarmer pattern is worked in the backs of the loops only, after the initial starting row.
And - here comes the polo neckwarmer pattern...
See - I told you it was easy! Bet you'll be making more than one. I think I'll be making them up in several colors as we're getting some really cold temperatures right now.
Isn't this polo neckwarmer pattern a great idea for a quick gift? The pattern came to me as I was wearing a 'v' neck fleece one day and was feeling decidedly draughty about the neck. Funny how things work out.
If you want to dress it up a little choose a crochet edging or work tassels or a fringe around the edge. This pattern also works as a mini capelet for a young child of about 4-6 years old. It will just drape over the shoulders to about a cap sleeve length.
You can also easily extend it to make a childs shrug or capelet by simply adding more stitches to the starting chain, then working any extra stitches as treble crochets.
I do hope you enjoy working up this fun polo neckwarmer pattern.
What about a ripple hat to keep the cold out.
