Karen’s Winter Scarf Free Crochet Pattern – December Scarf of the Month Club

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission.
Here’s how it works.

Karen’s Winter Scarf Free Crochet Pattern is crocheted with Medium Weight Yarn [4] and a 5.5 mm (I) crochet hook. This pretty textured scarf is crocheted using only single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches. You can easily change the length and width of the scarf to suit your needs and there is a simple twisted headband pattern you can make that will match the scarf.
