Harvest Time Scarf
By Pamela Kuloba
I love to wear scarves to accessorize my outfits whether it is cold or not. They accentuate any fashion for the better. One thing that bothers me though, is sometimes the scarf keeps falling off, and you have to adjust them all the time. This is mostly noticeable during cold weather as you try to keep warm and the scarf falls off. That is why I decided to make this double button scarf.
I wanted something soft, warm, and cozy. After looking around for a while, I decided to use this Bernat Blanket. I have used it before to make blankets and I love how it feels. It is very soft and soothes the skin as it keeps you warm.
Additionally, I decided to use a simple pattern that is quick and easy to make. This is a beginner pattern that uses only the double and single crochet stitches. The scarf is finished off with the double buttons to hold it in place. Well, with that, you are now set to enjoy your day with no worries of the scarf falling off or having to adjust. This pattern is perfect for making quick and cozy gifts for family and friends.
