The “NINO” Neck Warmer – Free Crochet Pattern

The “NINO” Neck Warmer – Free Crochet Pattern

Looking for a quick crochet project, this is for you. The NINO neck warmer is super easy to work up, you’ll be making them for everyone!

You can adjust the length and width of the neck warmer as well by increasing or decreasing the number of chs or rows for the perfect fit.


  • US H (5mm) hook
  • 1 x Paintbox Simply Aran (100% acrylic, worsted weight, 201 yards per skein)
    • approx. 158 yards


  • ch = chain
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • st(s) = stitch(es)
  • hhdc = herringbone half double crochet

Special Stitches

Herringbone Half Double Crochet:

yo, insert hook in stitch, yo pull up a loop, pull through first loop on hook, yo pull through both loops on hook.


  • pattern in US terms
  • ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch
  • 4″ x 4″ gauge: 15 sts x 11 rows
  • finished size: 9″ wide x 8″ tall laying flat


Row 1: ch 31, hhdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across, turn (30 sts)

Row 2 – 52: ch 1, hhdc across, turn (30 sts) 


Fold the neck warmer so the first and the last row meet. You can seam these rows together using your preferred method, I like using the sl st.

Seam the two ends together by placing a sl st in the back loop of the piece in front then through the front loop of the piece in back across the row.

Cut yarn, fasten, weave in ends
