10-Row Crochet Scarf | Quick Gift Idea!

Ask Me Monday: 10-Row Crochet Scarf

10-Row Crochet Scarf

This week on Ask Me Monday I show how to make a cheery, 10-Row Crochet Scarf that whips up quick enough that you can make them for all of your friends for the holidays. In this tutorial, I go over an alternative to starting with the usual chain stitch for a more even scarf, how to work spike stitches, and talk about different yarns in every budget that will look great with this pattern. Enjoy!
