Long Winter's Scarf
Designed by Brenda K. B. Anderson
This classic crochet muffler is made in a stitch pattern that even the pickiest of guys (or gals!) will love. The slip stitches make a very warm, flexible, and smooth fabric that closely resembles knitting. A gradient yarn creates just enough (but not too much) visual interest and allows you to watch the colors change as you stitch.
