I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

"Urbanite Neck Warmer" Version 2

Urbanite Neck Warmer Version 2

Urbanite Collage 2 

I have been busy remaking and modernizing some of my old patterns.  The "Urbanite Neck Warmer" came to life in 2009.  Five years ago I made this simple pattern and today it has been upgraded.  The benefit of having more experience and confidence and being able to  play with yarn.  I have included sizes, the yarn went from Super Bulky to Bulky.  It had two buttons, now it has three.  I am very happy with the outcome and let me tell you , I made one in 3 hours. There are four sizes, and the rest is up to you.

Even though this is not a scarf is definitely a Neck Warmer. It is a design intended for guys, but versatile enough that women may wear it and have a very fashionable item. It is all about materials and color play. It has an industrial Sci-Fi look that I really like. This is a very fast knit, no more than 3 hours and is great for a quick gift. One Skein of Bulky will do. This pattern has a chart and instructions for sizing.

This is $4.00.
