Is there a crocheted version

I love that scarf!

To the question about sizing--If and when I want something bigger-I Make my crocheted items bigger by increasing by one-half and this makes all the patterns bigger-measure the starting chain and if it fits-follow all the instructions but instead of stopping where they say-keep going till you come to the end of your piece--works for me for everything-and if you want something really bigger you can always double the pattern--I hope you are following what I am saying--I have been crocheting since I was 10 years old--now I am 57--and really having a great time since I am retired--good --

I love it, but one size only??

Brilliant pattern finally found some stunning scarfs to knit.
