Halloween Neck Warmer Knit Along

Halloween Neck Warmer on dress form

Get into the spirit of the season with a fun Halloween-themed neck warmer! Wear this whimsical cowl to your next video conference or class. It’s a small project that you’ll have finished in plenty of time for Halloween.

Starting Thursday, September 24, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. Eastern, we’ll be knitting along together for two weeks, although it won’t really take you that long to complete it.
I’ll be showing you all the stitch techniques you’ll need to create the ghost, skull and jack-o’-lantern motifs. Please join me for the fun!

One skein or less of worsted-weight yarn is all you’ll need, about 140 yds [128 m]. Choose a smooth yarn in a light or medium color to enhance stitch definition. I used Universal Yarn Deluxe Worsted Superwash, a classic wool yarn. Color Spice Rustic goes with my fall wardrobe, but there is a beautiful range of colors to choose from on the Universal Yarn website.

In the first version of the cowl I made a couple of years ago, I used Hikoo Sueno, which also works well.

The Pattern

The pdf pattern includes written instructions, knitting charts, and Stitch-Maps charts, so you can chose the type of instruction that works best for you. Stitch Maps work especially well in this type of pattern. In case you aren’t familiar with them, I’ll be explaining more about them during the Knit Along.

The pattern has been tested and professionally tech edited to ensure clarity. And of course, you can ask your questions during the Knit Along if you have trouble.
