Crochet Jogger’s Wrap

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

This is not pretty, but it’s my new best friend.


Hubby and I trade out “jogging” in the mornings. I think he actually jogs, but I “jog.” It’s closer to that exaggerated “I’ll-get-back-to-you-in-a-sec–I’m-hurrying-to-the-bathroom” shuffle that folks do when they have GOT to tinkle.

Anyhoodle, it’s COLD at 5:30AM these days. My chin, mouth, nose, and ears are KILLING me by the time I get home. And with my current winter wear, I could only cover three of the four at any one time. So, I decided to make a neck-face-cowl-hang-on-my-ponytail-thingy. I searched for a pattern, but all I found was this, which is totally cute, but won’t exactly do what I need, yo.

hi, “Tomato lady”,

I was laughing at your positive attitude when describing the terrorist hood. heck, for the covering size, you could cover the top of your head, too (unless you already use a ski hat or something like that). It’s a cute idea and i like it.

Hope your hubby did not get sick to avoid chores 🙂 My husband and I would like to send him some virtual sun (light therapy) from Florida. It worked for us when we lived in DC and NC…

Merry Christmas and I hope you’ll enjoy your time together with the rest of the incoming family.

Don’t feel bad Ivory, I look like a ninja when I go out in the cold. It all started with a crochet hat. I made it big because I have a whole lotta hair and somehow went a bit overboard. Then I decided my face got too cold with just the hat so a scarf soon followed. Again, the scarf wasn’t keeping my face warm and in fact did little more than strangle me whenever I would try to do anything. So, enter what my husband calls the ninja mask. Personally, I think it looks more like a crochet version of a doctor’s surgical mask, but silly me, I was using up a skein of black yarn so once I pile on the hat, scarf and mask…..yup, you guessed it. Ninja Linda. I’m currently trying to come up with something for this winter that won’t get me arrested if I need to stop at the bank. And don’t worry. your little face warmer isn’t ugly. Happy Hooking!

This looks great & I am in the middle of the pattern but noticed the instructions for Rows 3-20 are missing the instructions… Yikes! Please help… TIA

I have no idea. It was years ago. I will think about it. Sorry.

I’m laughing at your hubby jogs, but you “jog”….I call it “wogging” (really slow walking/jogging :-)) or “jocking” (jog/walking). I prefer “wogging”! It just sounds better 😉
