Mock-cable Neckwarmer

What to do with half a skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted? Make a neck warmer of course!

This little project came from the yarn leftover after making the Striped and Scalloped hat from One Skein Wonders. I am not too fond of the hat, probably because the colorway I chose makes my head look like a watermelon, and I used a smaller needle, since I didn’t have size 7, but the neck warmer, I love. Very simple and can be worn as an ear warmer too.

Mock-cable neckwarmer

Needed: ~100 yds of worsted weight yarn ( I used Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Dusty Olive), Size US 6 needles, 4ea 5/8″ buttons

Gauge: ~19 st/4 in stockinette ( I didn’t actually swatch, and it is not critical for this pattern)


Note: psso= pass slipped stitch over (in this case over the two knit stitches and off the needle)

yo= yarn over – (just wrap like you were going to make a stitch, but without a loop from the left needle)

CO 28 st.
