Neck warmers are one of the things I can't live without during the winters! It's funny how I've never tried to sew a neck warmer until now, really, instructables is inspiring me to make things everyday! I made 4 neck warmers with 4 different patterns in only 20 minutes and I couldn't wait to share the idea!

Anyways, this instructable will show how to make super easy yet cool neck warmers in 20 minutes! It was fun when I figured out that changing the positions of the buttons of a neck warmer can change the whole pattern of it!

Follow this ible to find out how buttons can change the pattern of a neck warmer and meanwhile try making yourself some cozy neck warmers or make'em as gifts! they're so easy to make, turn out great, so why not gift some warm, cozy neck warmers this Holiday season! :)

Step 1: Materials Needed

To make these neck warmers you'll need:

1) Fleece fabric,
2) Scissor,
3) Sewing machine,
4) Thread and needle,
5) Large Buttons - wooden buttons would look great!,

You might also need- measuring tape, pencil or chalk.

blue fleece? seriously? I have my blue fleece laying here since last week for a project :D
wow! I've bought these fleece last month but was waiting for the sew warm contest! when are we going to see a warm project from you? were you going to make neck warmers? :D
Not neck warmers but something reaaaly close to that :)
Well, lets wait, I'm sure it'll be amazing :) have loads of blue fleece left, it'll be fun to try out your warm project with it :)
<p>Still haven't finished it...</p>
<p>congratulations for being selected to the finalists :)</p>
...and I made another one. Thanks again!
love the color of the fleece fabric! great work :)
What a great inspiration you gave me. For the first time a made button holes and attached buttons with my sewing machine. I made your neck warmer for a friend of mine. Thanks a lot for your clear tutorial!
With my picture
wow, yours turned out sooo good! love the buttons. thanks for sharing and you've done a great work :) <br>and, no problem, I love sharing ideas!
Wow this is really pretty......:)
Thanks! ;)
I made one out of an old hoodie that didn't fit me anymore :) I know it's not perfect, but I've only just taken up sewing with a machine, so I still have a lot to learn
It looks great! you've done a nice job :)
Very nice! It looks great on!
Thank you so much sunshiine! :)
Hah! I'm a long-time knitter and have been knitting up neck warmers similar to these--some are 'infinity' circles, but even for those I planned to put BIG buttons on with snaps so the wearer could 'tighten' them up depending on need. Your 4th photo (the single large button on a kerchief style) is similar to what I've been making (using eyelet stitches as the buttonholes). AND if one knits with pure wool (or a derivative thereof such as mohair), you can 'felt' the fabric into a thicker version of the fleece you're using here. I hadn't yet decided where my buttons should go so will use your instructable as a guide--much appreciated! In a pinch I just might pick up some fleece now, and make some extras (when I run out of time to knit them)--AND they just might make great liners--to turn my own knitted ones into reversibles (or more comfortable for those who can't wear wool next to their skin). You've given me some fabulous ideas since I'm no good with a camera--or making instructables myself. Love it!
Thanks for stopping by and reading my ible! I've tried to learn knitting but the result is always 'zero'! it's kind of tricky! I'm so glad to know you're using big buttons, don't they look adorable! personally, I'd love to have a knitted neck warmer with big wooden buttons,they look great. I'm glad my ible was helpful, I hope you enjoy making them!
Oh, it's SO easy, actually. If you're even remotely good at math, I've found that knitting is great for those who can think mathematically, believe it or not. For example 'I' cannot learn crocheting--yet it's supposed to be far easier than knitting. :) Growing up in Scotland they tried to teach us in school but I was HOPEless, making a big muddle. But being very poor then I wanted to knit clothes for my dolls--so somehow taught myself and did a bit better. MUCH later, after my family emigrated to the US I began again and this time it all fell into place --as purely logical. NOW the stitches made sense. It also involves a lot of counting. I just found a tutorial for you on youtube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uw-nUvGrBY but could easily teach anyone. My local library does classes--so perhaps yours does too? All you have to know initially is to knit and purl (or even just knit) a rectangle. If you make it out of wool or a wool blend (not machine washable), you can felt it--and then use it as you do your fleece. Big needles and chunky yarn make it SO easy (and very warm). I LOVE the big buttons--and am finding old, retro wood ones to use with Aran yarn, or Bakelite ones for a more retro look. I really loved your idea and will definitely use it in my own creations. I'm going shopping this weekend for fleece. :)
I found crochet easier than knitting! but I have to learn knitting sooner or later, thanks for the tutorial, that's so nice of you, I'll definitely give it a try and let you know how it goes :)<br> If you do make some neck warmers with big buttons don't forget to share a picture of it, really excited to see :)<br> <br> Have a great crafty day!
If you like to sew and have a button-hole attachment for your sewing machine, you can sew buttonholes and slash them open with a knife. I like the handmade quality of hand-sewing the buttonholes, though. Thanks for sharing this simple ible and great gift idea!
Thank you so much! I'm not good with sewing machines and not sure if my machine has one! I'll check. I'm glad you like the neck warmers! :)
Absolutely lovely idea! Will be filling the stockings with these and a bonus is my fellow steampunks could only see them as a fantastic accessory...maybe a heavy cotton linen or wool collar to dress up the daily attire. Thank you much for the idea!
Thank you! sounds like a cool idea. If you do make some please post a picture, I'm really excited to see how they turn out :) <br>
