What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would rate this as a beginner crocheter. This is a super easy flat, not circular pattern! You need to know how to chain/slip stitch. This pattern is for a chocolate/vanilla scarf, but you can substitute any color combination you like! Directions for solid color scarf included! Easily adjust the length or width! This simple pattern has spectacular results at approx. 31" L X 6" W! Whip these up for your friends as gifts! I am! The same pattern will work for women, men and teens! Great gift for your hairdresser, babysitter, day care provider, neighbor or teacher! Need a secret santa gift? Hostess gift? How about the hard to buy for person or man on your list! Wrap them up under the tree for the unexpected guest! I am always available for help!
