Shell And Bar Tie-Up Scarflette

Best Blog Tips

I find neck warmers easier and faster to make than long scarves. I like them both, but when it is the season to give and you are making a bunch of them and honestly want to make some tracks, neck warmers are the smarter choice of them both, at least for me.
I am making all the neck warmers I am sharing here to give away, so, if you are looking for nice patterns to do the same, here's another find! The uniqueness of this one is that it ties up around your neck like a hankie.

Materials:
Worsted Weight yarn (I used Read Heart Hunter Green)
Size h crochet hook
Blunt needle
scissors
2"-long piece of cardboard
ruler or measuring tape

Chain 30 loosely.
Row 1-In 6th ch from hook make 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, * skip 2 ch, 1 dc in each of next 2 ch, skip next 2 chs, work 2 dc, ch2, 2 dc in next ch; rep from * across till you reach the last 3 chains, then, skip two chains and make 1 dc in last chain of row.
Row 2- Ch3 (counts as 1 dc throughout), 2 dc, ch 2, dc in ch-2 space of first shell, 1 dc in top of each of next 2 dc, *2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in ch-2 space of next shell, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, repeat from * across, 1 dc in each of last 3 dc.
Row 3- Ch 3, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in ch-2 space of first shell, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, *2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in ch-sp of next shell, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, rep across till last st, 1 dc inlast st. Ch 3, turn. Rep rows 2 and 3 until you have completed 28 rows.
Row 29- Ch2, leave loop on hook, yo, insert hook in next dc and pull up a loop, yo, pull through loops on hook as if to make a dc, but leave last loops on hook, yo and finish all stitches together. (1 decrease made). Skip 1 dc in shell and make 1 dc in ch-2 center of shell, skip 1 dc of shell and make 1 dc in next dc of shell, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc. Make 1 dec at beg of next shell, 1 dc in middle of ch-2 space of shell, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc of shell, 2 dc in each of next 2 dc. Make 1 dec at beg of next shell, 1 dc in middle of ch-2 space of shell, 1 dc in each of next 2 dc of shell, 2 dc in each of next 2 dc. 1 dc in next dc, 1 dec in next 2 dc to end row. Row 30-Make 1 dec at start of row, 1 dc in each dc to last 2 dc and 1 dec at end of row. Row 31- Rep row 30. Row 31- Work 1 dec at beg of row, make 1 dc in each of next 5 dc, make 1 dec, work 1 dc in each of next 3 dc, 1 dec to end row. Ch 3, turn. Row 32- 1 dec at start of row, 1 dc in each dc across row till you reach the last 2 dc, make 1 dec to end row. Row 33- Make 1 dec at beg of row, 1 dc in each dc till you reach the last 2, make 1 dec to end row. Row 34- 1 dec at start of row , 1 dc in each of next3 dc, 1 dec, 1 dc in next dc, 1 dec at end of row (6 sts left in row). Ch 1, turn. Row 35- 1 sc in each sc across. Row 36- Same as row 35. Ch 1, turn. Rows 36-47: 1 sc in each sc across, working on front loops only. Row 48-1 dec at beg of row, 1 sc in each of next 2 sc, 1 dec at end of row. Row 49-Working on both loops, make 1 sc in each sc across. Row 50- Rep previous row. Row 51- 1 sc at beg of row, 1 dec in next 2 sc, 1 sc at end of row. Rows 52-60: 1 sc in each sc across. Rows 61and 62- Makde 1 dec at start of row, in the middle and at end of row. Rep until you only have 1 st left. Fasten off, weave in tail.
Join yarn on other side of scarflette and repeat rows 29 to 62 on the other side. You will have a scarflette with two tying ends to which you will now sew a small tassel.
Tassel:
Cut two strands of yarn and lay them aside. Take your piece of cardboard and wind yarn around it, count the times you wind it so that your tassels will be equally thick. Carefully get your yarn off of the cardboard without mixing the strands and tangling them. Tie one of the strands of yarn you had laid aside around the "head" or topmost side of the would-be tassel. Secure well and then, taking the blund needle, slip both ends of the yarn you have tied it with and slip them under the tie, letting them hang among the tassel yarn. Repeat with the other tassel you need.
Measure them to the size you want with a ruler or a measuring tape, and trim the skirt of the tassel so that all the yarn pieces will have the same length. Do the same with the other tassel.
Take a piece of yarn and thread it through the blund needle, pass it throught he strands at the top of the tassel and sew the tassel to the end of the scarflette's tie. Repeat on the other side.
That's all!
Variations:
You can leave the ties as they are when you are done with the reductions (I always like to embellish) or you can add pompoms instead of tassels. You can also make a pompom tassel or butterfly tassel as follows: Follow the instructions for the tassels as given above. Tie very firmly. When you come to the time to trim your tassel, instead of trimming it in a straight cut all to the same length, trim to different lengths all around as if you were making a pompom. You can make your tassel longer than the one I chose to add to this scarflette. i wanted the tassels to look like little brushes, but if you like longer, classic tassels, make them way.

Join yarn on the other side of neck warmer and rep rows 37 to Loop Edging on that side. Fasten off and weave in tail.

Frog-style closure: With Lipstick yarn and G hook, make a crab stitch braid that is 10 inches long. Fasten off leaving a long tail to sew with.
You can make your closure in several ways, but let's try a simple one. Bend the crab stitch cord you just made in half, take the left leg of that bent cord and cross it over the right side leg, forming a loop, without undoing that loop, insert that same leg of cord into the center of the loop and pull gently, until you have a nice knot that looks almost like a Josephine knot, and two pieces of crab cord at both ends. You are going to bend those two pieces of cord and sew them with the tail you left, one upwards and one downwards, to form your frog. Then you will sew this to the neck warmer at a height that is comfortable to close it around the neck, using the small loops of the crab cord to anchor your stitches. Fasten off. Sew button opposite loop of the frog closure on the other side of the neck warmer. Fasten off.
Note: Since this is a closure and it will pulled ever time the neckwarmer is used, sew your stitches firmly, not tight, but firm so that the pretty frog will not come apart.
You're done!
This pattern has been corrected. Thank you again, Margaret!
Fire-ice-aiken, the pattern is simpler now!

Lacy Keyhole Neck Warmer

Best Blog Tips

Materials:
Worsted weight yarn of your choice (I used Red Heart Coffee and Cafe yarns)
H size crochet hook
Note: Puff Stitch: Yo, insert hook into the specific stitch, yarn over, insert hook back into the same stitch (3 lps on hk), repeat all these steps twice more (if necessary, count your loops, which must be 7 lps on hook), yarn over and pull yarn through all loops on hook. If you wnat to, make a single crochet stitch or 1 chain, to complete the stitch better. I didn't do it because I needed a certain amount of stitches and did not want to be thrown off by an extra chain or stitch. If you do add this stitch or chain, please be aware of your addition and skip that stitch when working the subsequent rows.
Keyhole:
With Coffee yarn and H hook, ch 34. Sl st in beginning ch, being careful not to twist. Ch 1.
Rnd. 1- Sc in each sc around, sl st to join round. Ch 3.
Rnd. 2- 1 dc in each of next 2 dc, 2 dc in next sc, *1 dc innext sc, 2 dc in each of last 2 sc, rep around till last 2 sts, 1 dc in each of last 2 sc, sl st to end rnd. Ch 1.
Rnd. 3- 1 sc in each of next 2 dc, 1 sc in each of next 4 dc, 2 sc in next dc, 1 sc in each of next 3 dc, 2 sc in next dc, 1 sc in each of next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc, *1 sc in each of next 5 dc, 2 sc in next dc, rep from * around to end of rnd. Sl st to end rnd. Fasten off. Weave in tail. Stretch the resulting circle into an oval.
Lace:
Join Cafe to one of the edges of the oval.
Row 1 (Base row)- Ch 4, 1 Tr. in next st, 1 dc in each of next 2 sc, 1 hdc in each of next 11 sc, 1 dc in each of next 2 sc, 1 Tr in each of next 2 sc. Ch 3, turn.
Row 2- 1 dc in each of next dc, puff stitch in next stitch (see note), 1 dc in next dc, 1 dc in each of next 3 sts, *1 puff st in next st, 1 dc in each of next 3 sts, rep from * across. Ch 4, turn.
Row 3- Skip 1 stitch from prev row, 1 dc in next st, *ch 1, skip 1 stitch, 1 dc in next stitch, rep from * across. Ch 3, turn.
Rep rows 2 and 3 alternately until you have reached 22 inches, measruing from row 1 (base row).
Shell Edging:
Ch 3, make 2 dc ch 2, 2 dc in same space, skip 3 sts, make 1 sc in next st, skip 3 sts, *make 2dc, ch 2 2dc in next stitch, skip 3 sts, make 1 sc in next st, rep from * across. Fasten off. Weave in tail.
Keyhole Side:
With Cafe, join to one of the edges of the bottom of the oval.
Row 1- Repeat row 1 of lace.
Row 2- Repeat row 2 of lace.
Row 3- Repeat row 3 of lace.
Continue repeating rows 2 and 3 alternately until you have completed 12 rows, including the base row.
Shell Edging: Make the same shell edging you made on the other side of the neck warmer. Fasten off and weave in tail. This side must measure at least 7 inches from base row to edge of shell edging.
That's all there it to this project. Enjoy!
You can use a contrasting color for the keyhole. For example, you can make your keyhole red and your lace royal blue, or any combination you would like.
