Gradient Shells Scarf


Marie Segares/Underground Crafter


This simple crocheted scarf makes a great last minute gift. The self-striping yarn does all the work for you, so there’s no need to change colors or weave in lots of ends. Unlike many shell stitch pattern scarves, this one has straight edges on both sides, making it a great unisex pattern.Skills UsedBasic crochet stitches: chain, single crochet, double crochetCrocheting in rowsIncreasing and decreasing (with written instructions in pattern)Skill LevelEasy
