There are now 31-35 ch-loops with 4 tr in each side for band.
ROW 3: 3 ch in 1st tr, 1 tr in each of the next 3 tr, skip first ch-loop, * 4 tr + 2 ch + 4 tr in next ch-loop, 1 tr in next ch-loop *, repeat from *-* until 2 ch-loops remain, work 4 tr + 2 ch + 4 tr in next ch-loop, skip last ch-loop and finish with 1 tr in each of the 4 tr on band = 15-17 fans with 4 tr in each side towards mid back for band, turn piece.
ROW 4: 3 ch in 1st tr, 1 tr in each of the next 3 tr, * 4 tr + 2 ch + 4 tr in middle of next tr-group (i.e. in ch-loop in tr-group), 1 tr in tr from previous row *, repeat from *-* until 1 tr-group remains, 4 tr + 2 ch + 4 tr in the middle of this tr-group and finish with 1 tr in each of the 4 tr on band, turn piece.
Repeat 4th row until piece measures approx. 21-21 cm.
WORK NEXT ROW AS FOLLOWS: 4 ch in 1st tr, 1 dtr in each of the next 3 tr, * 4 dtr + 2 ch + 4 dtr in middle of next tr-group, 1 dtr in tr from previous row *, repeat from *-* until 1 tr-group remains, 4 dtr + 2 ch + 4 dtr in the middle of this tr-group and finish with 1 dtr in each of the 4 tr on band, turn piece.
Repeat this row until piece measures approx. 35-35 cm. Cut and fasten the thread. Now crochet the neck warmer tog in the back as follows: Fold the neck warmer double.
