The Necks Big Thing / Crochet


1) 90 yards super bulky, bulky or chunky yarn
2) #19 or #17 needles, plus darning needle.

Rina Watt’s clever scarf is a quick easy pattern that takes advantage of the texture of chunky or handspun yarn. You just knit the loop and let the yarn strands loop through. Amazingly beautiful effect for very little effort! You have to have great yarn for the best look. Pictured project by Klisakcat.

Recently I saw someone making one of these fabulous designs again it was reminded of how great a gift-project this is. It’s got everything going for it:

quick to make
easy to knit (or crochet!)
requires just 1 skein of yarn
What is there not to love?

For anyone interested, here is the pattern I came up with:

US Size N/15 (10 mm) hook

Ch 10. Sc in second ch from hook and each ch across, turn.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in first sc, [tr in next sc, sc in next sc] across, turn.

Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each st across, turn.

Rep Rows 1-2, 9 more times. Fasten off. Attach fringe as for knit version.

It took me less than 30 minutes to make. 🙂

Talk about a quick project, this is one. My daughter and I love it. It is just so much fun figuring out what yarn to use, then start the project, you are just getting comfortable and then you are done. Love it

  1. I’m new to knitting and wondered if you would consider creating a How To video for this project.
    I know I would appreciate such a video, and imagine others would as well. 🙂
