Cable Knit Neck Warmer

Cable neck warmer scarf knitting pattern

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!

US size 10.5/ 6.5 mm knitting needles

Cable needle or DPN (I used a double pointed needle)

Darning needle for weaving in ends



CO: Cast on

BO: Bind off

K: Knit

P: Purl

cn: cable needle

C6F: cable 6 front (sl next 3 sts to cn and hold in front, K3, K3 from CN)

C6B: cable 6 back

sl: slip

sts: stitches

Button holes: 

Cast on 26 stitches

Row 1: K6, BO2 K10, BO2, K6

*There should be 6 stitches on both sides of your “hole”. 

Row 2: Knit 6, co 2, k10, co 2, k 6

*You should now have 26 stitches back on your needle.

Row 3: Knit

Now you have your button holes!

Repeat cable pattern rows 1-8 until desired length, then knit 2 rows. Bind off and weave in ends. Block if needed. Sew on buttons and enjoy your newfound warmth with a cup of hot cocoa! Again, this is my first pattern, so I’d love any feedback, constructive criticism, advice, complaints, or even a thumbs up if you liked the pattern! Thanks for reading and enjoy!

  1. Love the pattern and will try it hopefully during this week. I hope the yarn I have in mind will work, it’s officially not super bulky but only bulky.

    I just wrote it down, so I crossed two things, which might be written differently. It’s super clear and I don’t see any problems following it, but there are two suggestions though, since you asked for it:

    1. use C6F / C6B in the instructions and add the “sl 3, k 3, k the sl st” to the abbreviations. That makes it more readable.
    3. you forgot the BO row ;) It’s obvious and everyone will do it anyway, but just to have the pattern completed.

    Thanks for the pattern and you’ll hopefully see my cowl soon on Ravelry :)

  2. Thanks so much for your feedback! Ha- can’t believe I forgot the bind off row. I am going to put that in now, and use the C6F/C6B thanks! Can’t wait to see yours!

    • Hi Margo,

      It’s me again. I just cast on and got quite confused from the first row.
      In my experience, BO also includes knitting the stitches, which will be passed over. So my first try ended in:
      Knit 9, pass one over
      Knit 3, pass one over
      Knit 11, pass one over
      Knit 3, pass one over… Oops, out of stitches

      Then I read the comment with the 6 st on the outsides and understood my mistake.

      So your BOs are actually only the pass overs and not the entire BO.

      My suggestion: k6, bo2, k10, bo2, k6

      Since it’s already 11pm and my cat decided to sleep on the pattern, while I’m writing this, I’m stopping for today, but I’ll post a picture tomorrow :)

      • I see what you mean- it made sense in my head to write it that way- but your suggestion makes much more sense! Thanks for your feedback, this has been really helpful!

  3. Hi Margo,
    Thanks for sharing this quick and beautiful neck warmer pattern. I tried it with a chunky cotton yarn with some variation in color and it turned out beautiful. It looked different with this yarn so I ended up making it a little longer but still use the two buttons. I haven’t found the buttons for it yet but it is beautiful. I will try it with a different yarn next.
