Free Pattern! DIY Easy Cable Knit Neck Warmer
Hi! Today I’m going to share my first ever knitting pattern with you! I made this cabled neck warmer using 1 skein of Chunky Mochi yarn by Crystal Palace. I love how it turned out! The neck warmer is a fall favorite of mine- it gives even the simplest top- like this thrifted white tee- a regal look. I felt like a queen wearing it with a shade of coral lipstick and my hair in a messy bun. I threw on a pair of gray sweater leggings and my boyfriends oversized hooded sweater looked like a million bucks! The most expensive part of the outfit was the yarn for the neckwarmer- only $8.50.
This is my first knitting pattern, so any constructive criticism or feedback is greatly appreciated and encouraged! I am still learning here, but this is a pretty simple pattern that can be modified to fit your needs! You can create it any length you want. I can envision this as a full length scarf- keep the buttons and make it an optional infinity scarf! Please feel free to message me if you have any questions, or problems with the pattern.
1 skein Chunky Mochi yarn by crystal palace- or any bulky yarn suited for size 10-11 needles. Gauge isn’t terribly important, as long as it covers your neck up, you’re good!
