Romantic Victorian Neckwarmer


Romantic Victorian Neckwarmer


If you love knitting patterns, neckwarmers are great patterns to make for both fall and winter. This Romantic Victorian Neckwarmer is especially interesting. Not only does it have a very Victorian feel, but it's knit with ruffles, raglan increases and a fun contrasting border.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made it for an old lovely woman. She loves it. Then I made one for myself. I love it too,

The blog hosting the pattern went offline temporarily. It is now back up and running--you should be able to get the pattern just fine. Thanks for all of your messages. Editors of AllFreeKnitting Easy to find...!

Unable to get pattern

The link to the pattern does not work, and when I try Veronica ONeil from Vo Knits nothing comes up either.

File not found???

Victorian styles are on their way back in. This is beautiful. A lot of use for cold and damp weather areas. There are a lot of todays fashions that would intergratewonderfully with this. I would love to have it just a little longer in front and back also. Thank you for this patterns. Absolutley gorgeous.

It is too costumy for me, but for carolers it would be nice, and warm.

unable to get the pattern .Would you mind sharing?

I have lost weight, but still am quite large. The ruffels would not look good on me. I think lace would look better where the ruffels are. It is cute and I will probably make one. I have one granddaughter out of 7 that it would look good on. Thank you

I love this pattern for my carolers to wear. I've made FOUR of them this week alone and they are beautiful. I did notice ONE major mistake in the pattern however. On page 1, in the bottom section where it says "Row 3"; it says: "K2, yo, k2tog to last 4 sts, ssk, yo, k2"; however it should say the same as the section above it, "K2, yo, k2tog, "k" to last 4 sts, ssk, yo, k2"; leaving out the "k" to last 4 sts would leave holes all the way across the row. There is only one hole on each side for the ribbon. I also found that is I did the "ssk, yo" on the opposite side, the hole didn't come out big enough for the ribbon, so I chose to do "k2tog, yo, k2"; this worked better for me.

I'd like it to be a shawl or some such, longer and more Victorian.

I agree with the comment about wearing it in Dec. for caroling. I always have a cold neck in the winter and I think this would do the trick keeping me warm! :o) ....and pretty!

I would make this, but I don't know where I would wear it--I never have a cold neck (being one who seems to sweat all the time), and it doesn't match today's fashions...but I like it.

I would not wear it so would not knit it. Very impractical as would have to be laced each time. Would not fit under coat or jacket. More of a "costume" knit, maybe?

Yes. I definitely will make this. My youngest sister loves everything Victorian. It will be up to her whether or not she wears it or displays it such as it is shown. I like it myself, but I don't like anything that tight on my neck.

This neckwarmer is attractive and I like the contrasting yarns. However, No, I wouldn't knit it because the neck opening with the ribbon is too bulky at the throat and would make bending the chin uncomfortable. The ribbon doesn't close the bottom of the warmer. The flounce suggests that this is designed to be worn on top of other clothing, which would cause the ribbon closure to gap even more. Perhaps if the ribbon closure was put on the side in at a jaunty angle, it would be easier on the neck and throat to wear.

I would knit it. I think it would be fun to wear caroling in December. I also like lindajocrozier's idea of turning it into a skirt for a little girl. I could also see it with straps and a longer body and less ruffles for a cute top.

I would not knit this as a neck warmer, but think it has possibilitly as a fun, junior skirt.

I likt this a lot. I wil be knitting one for myself. I think it will be great during the cold winter commutes.

OMG no I would not wear this or knit it...ever. It just looks like something a clown would wear. It's awful.

My family runs warm and especially if something is on the neck, so, NO, I would NOT knit this for myself or family, maybe an old fashioned friend...

I think this is really cute. I would make it in a heartbeat.

I will make this for myself and as a gift.

I do like Victoria styles of knitting. However with this Neck Warmer, I would rather not have to knit the upper part for the Neck.. it appears to me to be a little constricting in a way.. But no matter what I think it is still very pretty. Thanks so much for sharing it with us all to see and decide.

Lovely pattern - I will omit the ribbon and size it for buttons, some old Victorian buttons would be nice.

Thank you for this beautiful Old World pattern. I can't wait to make it for myself. I have patterns from the 30's forward and this will be a great addition. I give this pattern 5 stars. by badtech1951

I wouldn't knit it for myself, but I would as a gift for my goddaughter. She'd love it!

I LOVE it! Not only would I make it, I would make it for, at least one daughter and four friends. The only thing I would change is the color. The model is harsh looking and I would change it to softer colors ... mauve, rose, teal, etc.

This looks great. I would love to try it. Mmmm what color will i use. LOL

I love it! It is so sweet. I may even try to make a longer one, turning it into a cape.

Like it very much! I've been trying to figure out what yarn to use and what changes I might need to make (my daughter suggested turning it into a cape), but definitely want to knit it.

Not only would I knit it but I am going to buy the yarn for it tomorrow so I can start it. I love the vintage stuff.

No - It's clever - but definitely not my style (nor that of anybody I know). Sorry - just doesn't have it!

for me to knit this I owuld either eliminate the ruffles or make it a short cape then either way i would make it

I would knit this but with a few design changes. Maybe a lighter weight yarn to give it a nicer drape, lighter color also, ribbon is okay but fancy buttons would be nice too. Will try this pattern.

I would make it in a more delicate color with unusual buttons. It might be nice to use a lighter weight yarn. It's nice to wear if you have a drafty window in your office...warmth with panache. It would also be great if you didn't want to struggle with a scarf while shopping or at a sporting event.

What a terrific item - I will make several in different color combos!

It is very pretty to look at, but I would never wear it.

Love it! I might want to change it a little, perhaps buttons instead of the ribbon (too much trouble to get off & on), or possibly make a lacier version, but I like this version, as well.

Too traditional for me. If there were jewels or fancy buttons on the from instead of the ribbon ties I might like it.

This is so beautiful, so much like an olde fashioned neckwarmer seen on a Christmas card with girls and boys iceskating. Little House on the Prairie or Anne of Green Gables are called to mind.
