The Layer Scarf

The Layer Scarf

Easy crochet scarf for beginners!

This short and wide scarf Is the perfect layering piece! I was freezing in another meeting and wanted something to put over my shoulders that would possibly fit under my jacket. Thankfully, I was travelling with YARN! Unfortunately, that yarn is discontinued. I’ve found a great alternative that I’ve tagged below!

This pattern is great for beginners who are comfortable with Double Crochet. If you aren’t quite there yet, here’s a video so you can practice!
