A warming Collar is a pretty substitute for a neckwarmer or a scarf. They are fun and a good change from the regular neckwear. This one is feminine, pretty and easy to make!

What a lovely idea!!!  This is ideal for those 'transitional' autumn/fall days when the weather can't decide on its mood!!  You can easily adjust this to make in a lighter yarn for the cooler spring days, too!!!  Thank you so much for sharing this :-)

Thank you for your nice words! Yes, this is a very versatile piece of neckwear! You can make it in the softest, fluffiest yarn or in a heavier one for snowy days. It will always be pretty !

Hello CraftyBegonia, Nice pattern! This will keep my neck warm during our New England winters! I am bit confused by the directions. It seems that there are two sets of directions for row 3. (Row 3 is included in Row 2 and then a different set of directions in Row 3.) Can you let me know which set to use? THANKS!

I apologize for the row numbering mistake. I have corrected it. I have found a lot of mistakes myself in purchased patterns and understand the feeling. If you had continued it ignoring the row number, the result would have been the same as in the photo though.
