Easy Crochet Scarf Pattern

by Johnnie Collier

Easy Crochet Scarf

It was love at first stitch with me and Lion Brand Homespun yarn.  Rummaging through the ol’ yarn supply, I found a single skein of this fluffy, soft, variegated fiber in the warm color scheme “Bourbon”.  A simple scarf I whipped up a few years back came to mind, and I got busy.   Today I will share with you this beginner level, super fast pattern that creates an elegant spiral effect, using evenly spaced increases every row.  The only stitch you need to know besides chain stitch is double crochet.  I made this in a single evening while catching up on a miniseries.  I plan to make a few more for Christmas gifts.  This project is ideal for sharing some holiday handmade love!
