Do you remember my “fruity pebble” Infinity Scarf from last year? I can’t tell you how much I love that scarf! The colors are gorgeous and I’ve been wearing it all winter long since it matches practically everything I own!
I still had at least 3/4 of a skein left of this Rainbow Bright yarn, so over the holidays, I crocheted a matching cowl scarf (Instagram pic) for my missy. (We are quite the pair!)
I learned to crochet 30ish years ago and picked it back up last year. (I took this Craftsy class as a refresher.) If you’re interested in this class, get on the Craftsy email list. This class is often marked down 50%.
My favorite crochet stitch is double crochet. You can finish a project so quickly with this stitch. I love sitting on the couch in the evening with my crochet project, watching our favorite DVR’d shows with my hubby.
This scarf project was very simple. To fit my 7 year old, this cowl scarf is 28 double crochets for 49 rows. When I was done, I crocheted the ends together to form the cowl. Here is the gauge info from the back of the yarn if you want to make a similar scarf:
I’m tempted to make one more, maybe about 20 double crochets wider to make a little cowl scarf/hood.
