Happy National Crochet Month everyone! I am happy to join you in this month-long celebration of my favorite craft! Today I'd like to share with you a new free pattern in honor of the occasion!
This is "Berry Scarf." This scarf is simple to make. It will make a great project for a newish crocheter, or a good TV watching project for an experienced stitcher. It will also be a great travel project since it is small and easily memorized. The finished scarf will be a good one to keep stuffed in your purse or carry-on for when you are somewhere that is a bit chillier than you'd like.
This is sized well for an adult, but I especially loved these colors on my daughter, so she is modeling it for me, but no worries, you can make it for anyone you like! On her, the scarf is long enough to double. It probably is not long enough to double on an adult, but it won't be difficult to add more length if you want it. Visit Ravelry to favorite and queue the pattern!
