If you can single crochet, double crochet and make a pom pom you can make this scarf! Simple increases and decreases create a flattering shape to this piece.
I designed this scarf back in 2018 using self striping yarn (and it was beautiful!) I recently decided to revisit this design but a little more with some different yarn
My first sample is made in City Tweed by We Crochet. The main color is Orca with some Snowshoe blended in on one end. I think the additional color adds a little fun pop.
