I have been saving this super cute mustard yellow yarn for a rainy day (let's be honest--I pretty much save all my yarn for a rainy day), and finally found a project worthy of it. I put my new crochet skills to good use and made this braided scarf/cowl:
I spotted this on Pinterest, and instantly knew that I had to try the scarf. It turned out so well, and was a super-easy project, especially for a beginner like me. The suggested "pattern" for it didn't seem like it would really work for what I was trying to accomplish, so I changed it up a bit. I cast on 120 stitches and did 5 rows of double crochet, times three strands (size H hook). Braid them up, seam them off and voila! Scarf.
I can't wait to wear it!
