Featured Scarf -Ombre Log Cabin Infinity Scarf
Number 1 on our list of FREE easy beginner crochet scarf patterns is this infinity scarf that I designed and crocheted all while staying in a cozy log cabin. It was snowing for several days and my family and I had a great time enjoying the peace and quiet inside and outside just a week or so before Christmas one year. This crochet scarf uses a simple variation on the half double crochet stitch that creates a knit-like look and is best worked in the round. And those pretty color changes? All done by the yarn so I had only 2 ends to weave in at the end!
