Singles Summertime Scarf: A Crochet Project for those fingering yarn singles.
This week on Ask Me Monday I show how to crochet the Singles Summertime Scarf, the perfect project for using those fingering yarn singles mini-hanks that we’ve all collected from our favorite LYS. This project is great for beginners, a quick-make (I made this one in an evening) for more advanced stitchers, and a bright, happy addition to our warmer-weather wardrobes.
Watch the video, scroll down for the pattern, then tag @vickiehowell with your finished projects. Enjoy!
