Cherry Ice Cream Warming Collar

Best Blog Tips




This is my after-Christmas gift for all of you who love pretty things! A warming collar is a lovely piece that can substitute a scarf in a really nice way. This one is very easy to make, I hope you enjoy it.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all you blessings and good things in the coming New Year!

I used Red Heart Candy Print for this collar. I love the way this yarn turns almost anything you make into a swirl of delicious pink!

Materials-
1 skein Red Heart worsted weight variegated yarn Candy Print
Red heart worsted weight Pretty ‘N Pink (about half of a skein or less)
Crochet hook sizes H and G
Blunt needle
Scissors

We will start the scarf on its narrow end and will form the width this way, then we will work upwards.
Ch 8.
Row 1- 1 dc in fourth ch from hook, 1 dc in each of next 2 ch, ch 2, 1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc in last ch. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2- In the first ch-2 sp, work 1 sc, 2 dc, 1 sc, in the next ch-2 sp, make 1 sc, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, 1 sc, in the last ch-2 sp, work 1 sc, 2 dc, 1 sc, in the next ch-2 sp, ch 2, 1 dc in last 3 dc, 1 dc in top of turning ch. Ch 3, turn.

Rep rows 2 and 3 for pattern until you have reached 31 inches or a total of 50 rows. Fasten off Candy print and weave in tail.

After you finish the Lining, pull it down so that it falls appropriately behind the top of the collar. Sew collar lining to the edge of Candy Print collar, as invisibly as possible to make sure that the lining will stay in place. Fasten off, weave in tail. Repeat on opposite side of collar. Fasten off, weave tail. Work on ties and pom poms.

Ties (Make 2)-

Cut a piece of Candy Print yarn and tie tightly around the center of the wrapped bundle of yarn. With a pair of scissors, trim all around. Make sure both pom poms are the same size. Leave at 1” all around.

Sew 1 pom pom to the end of each tie. Thread blunt needle with Candy Print and sew each tie to neck edge of collar. Fasten off, weave in tail.

Done!
