Say hello to the cutest crochet neck warmer you’ve ever seen. These are so quick and easy to bring together. I’m tempted to make one for everyone in my family this Christmas as a cute, custom winter gift.
This crochet cowl buttons up so it stays secure around your neck to keep you especially warm during those cold, winter months.
I love to throw one of these on before I leave the house, but they’re also perfect for ice skating, tubing, and other winter activities to keep chilly wind and snow at bay.
Because these are so easy to make, you can make several in different colors to coordinate with whatever you’re wearing.
It’s a cute cold weather crochet project that I’m obsessed with, and I think you will be too.
