Clever and beautiful is the raccoon - and so is this scarf! Treat yourself or that special animal lover in your life. Make a statement in support of banning the fur trade. I designed and wrote this pattern for intermediate crocheters. The pattern is written using standard American crochet instructions. Included are diagrams and photographs - however, most of the instructions are written. The pattern does NOT include a stitch chart. This is NOT a photo tutorial. Please be aware that U.S. crochet stitches may not be the same as stitches from other countries. If you learned crochet in a country other than the United States, please do an internet search to see if there is any difference between U.S. stitches and the stitches in your country.

You do NOT have permission to recopy, rewrite, redistribute or resell my patterns in any form, as your own or otherwise.
