Super Chunky Twisty Neck Warmer

A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern


I have this yarn:


I think that maybe it is rug yarn. I used to have a lot of this yarn. I tried making it into a rug, and it looked awful.
I threw it away.
I know "Bad Julia, Bad!"
You do not throw yarn away, even when it has been made into something awful. You could find another purpose for it.

I have been seeing these knitted neck warmers all over Pintrest and Etsy, and then my friend made one. I had to have one too. I would much rather crochet than knit so I hurried up and made a pattern for myself using Tunisian crochet. I am pretty happy with the results.
