This colorful scarf uses a repeated double crochet stitch pattern to create a warm winter accessory sure to get you a thousand compliments! The best thing about this scarf is that once you’ve got the pattern down to muscle memory, you can hook this beauty while you’re binge-watching all of your favorite shows on Netflix (or Hulu)!

I've made three of these scarves now and I'm on my fourth - and I absolutely LOVE the pattern and the yarn! I've only been crocheting for a few months now, but these will make lovely Christmas gifts and are really easy because of the repeat pattern. I can even watch TV as I do one now! I've used four different Caron Cakes colors so far and I'm about to adapt the pattern to make a shawl/wrap. I'll have to see how that goes and how best to do it, but this is a very good beginner pattern. Thanks so much for sharing it!
