Venetian Carnival Crochet Neckwarmer

I happened to have a beautiful skein of yarn in my stash, a gift from a #fibreshare friend on Instagram, and the desire to make something. So… I searched Ravelry to find the perfect pattern and tadaaa…. the Venetian Carnival Neckwarmer fit the bill!

This main part of the neck warmer is made up of a front and back post double crochet. I’m not sure if I did it “right”, but here is a video I made while watching the Olympics 🙂  of how I understood the stitch and I like the way it turned out.

So just one skein of fingering weight yarn, 6 yummy buttons and a bit of patience and voila! You have a great gift for yourself or someone special.

You’ll find the pattern for purchase on Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/venetian-carnival

Here are the materials I used:

  • 3.5mm (size E) Crochet Hook
  • 1 skein of fingering weight yarn = 462.0 yards (422.5 meters), 100 grams
  • 6 buttons

My finished piece measured 9″ x 21″ blocked. I found 6 great buttons at Joann fabrics to finish it off. Lovely!

    This looks delicious, Marni! If only I had a long, thin neck 🙁
