Crochet Scarf Patterns



The wind was bitingly cold that day; far colder than most, or so it seemed. You walked down the street, hands shoved deep into your pockets, desperately searching for some vagrant scrap of warmth, any meager protection against the frosty December air. None came, none could. Sadly, you shook your head, as one thought echoed in your mind. 'If only I had a scarf.'

Don't let this sorry scenario become your next diary entry. Before the winter chill settles in, scan some of the hundreds of beautiful crochet scarf patterns out there, and give yourself the gift of warmth, a lovely handmade scarf! Between all the different styles, colors, and textures, there is a cornucopia of crochet scarf patterns for you to choose from. You might want to use a crochet scarf pattern that has a soft texture and a nice blend of colors providing warmth, and looking nice at the same time. Other crochet scarf patterns call for thicker yarn that may not have the neatly stitched look, but will certainly keep your neck and face toasty on the coldest winter days! Crochet gives any ordinary scarf the added bonus of warmth and style (whatever style you are aiming for). And best of all, scarves are quick and easy to make. You will be finished with your crochet scarf pattern before you've even finalized plans for the weekend!

Don't think scarves should be reserved for the cold weather, though. Scarves, after all, are not just for keeping warm. There are many crochet scarf patterns that can be worn while walking on the beach, at a cozy picnic lunch, during a quick catnap in your favorite seat on a lazy summer day, even on a date one pleasant spring night. The lightweight scarf creates an image of security upon its wearer. They make an outfit look put together, even if it was really just thrown together on the fly (which is why scarves can save you from the 'I have nothing to wear, and my date is going to be hear in fifteen minutes' blues). Scarves are irreplaceable fashion accessories. They say, "I am where it's at" or simply "I'm chic`", but also "I can have fun"! They are the perfect blend of sophisticated taste and convivial fervor. Imagine, all this conveyed without you having to say a word, or put in any effort!

Crochet scarf patterns that call for filet stitches are sure to take any outfit up a step. These lacy stitches truly give a classy and attractive air to anyone suave enough to don them.

So whether you're looking to turn heads at your next party, boost your status at work or with peers, or just keep warm during the mid-winter freeze, scarves are here for you. Choose the crochet scarf pattern that suites your needs best, and enjoy the fruits of your labor today!

The following crochet scarf pattern was a truly pleasant surprise birthday gift from a friend. She's a real eccentric, so her own self-made scarf used black, white, and neon green! -She chose those colors specifically to match a great pair of bell-bottoms that she already owned. The scarf really gave a new flair to her outfit.-The one she made for me, however, was a mixture of three shades of blue. This gentle blend of stitch and hue created the perfect image of cloudy softness that simply lulled me (to this day, I sometimes use it as a pillow!) Really, whatever colors you prefer can be used. Regardless, this scarf is sure to become a regular member in your wardrobe lineup.
