Neck Warmers For My Girls

Decided to make a few neck warmers for my girls.  I love the turquoise, teal, squiggly yarn; it's so soft! It's another lovely yarn by Red Heart.  You can find it here on Amazon (delivered right to your door).   I used a very simple crochet stitch to make the cowl (neck warmer).  It's a bit tricky because the yarn is so bumpy that it makes it difficult to know where your stitches are, but eventually I found a way by using my fingers to feel the stitch instead of relying on my eyes alone.

The dark pink one is made of this super soft, velvety yarn (it's nice and think).  You can find this velvety yarn here on Amazon.  To make this neck warmer, I started with a chain (the width I wanted the cowl to be and then I crocheted  in the back loop (when you do this, you get that lovely ribbed effect that looks just like knitting but way faster).  I basically make a rectangle, joined both ends and then crocheted the seam closed.  I used a large hook for crocheting this cowl, hook US #8.  I got mine here for a good price.
