SMASHING SCARVES FOR GIFTING

Scarves make great gifts.  They tend to work up quickly, don’t take too much yarn, and are a great way to experiment with new stitches and color palettes.  I often feel I can splurge on a single skein of luxurious yarn when I’ll only need ONE to crochet a great scarf.  Here are a few great scarf patterns, free for the taking online.

Here’s the Clapochet Scarf.  I’ve seen it crocheted in several yarns.  I think my favorite is my friend Rita’s which she did in Collage bulky weight in a colorway that had ‘watercolor’ type variations in the deep wine/rusty family.  Really lovely.  I’ve also seen it in a white tone-on-tone colorway which was splendid.  I think almost any nice yarn would make a truly wonderful scarf.
