Boutique Splurge: Inspired Crochet


This winter I splurged on this Wai Ming Sweater.  The short sleeved cropped sweater looks awesome over my long maxi skirt and a long sleeve shirt.  I love the way it looks when my coat is buttoned up over the sweater revealing a dramatic cowl neck.

Therefore, I decided to crochet a black and white chevron neck warmer that is reminiscent of this sweater!  Winter is not quite over either as you can see from the winter wonderland behind me!



I made up my own pattern, here it is and be sure to let me know if you don't understand something about it because it has not been tested.
