Introducing you to the Sweet Pink Spring Scarf! When it starts getting warmer around here in Alabama…I get really excited. I can start designing with my cotton yarn again! In the winter months, most projects really have a functional purpose of keeping us warm along with the look and style as the 2nd priority don’t you think? When the warmer weather is trying to peak through my crochet thoughts are more of designing stylish pieces that can add a fashion sense to what you are wearing. While this accessory is definitely a scarf….it’s purpose was to wear as a fashion statement. Sometimes we just want to look cute and well put together and what better way than to wear this piece?
Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton is definitely one of my favorite cotton yarns! It has a wonderful sheen and gives incredible stitch definition! You’ll especially love this project because it only takes one skein of yarn!! Plus, at the time of this blog post….Craftsy has the yarn on SALE for $7.12/skein!
