Pattern description
From the website:
This crochet scarf is ALL about contrast. (Contrasting colours, shades, number of rows per colour, textures, spaces, shiny yarn with matte yarns, fluffy with smooth,ad nauseum) It works from the same principles as the man scarf, but in multiples. The pattern took some time to compose, but just flew off the needles. The dark brown was the master colour I chose and selected everything else around it. A mohair, a bouclé, a merino, a fancy, a variegated, etc.

My advice to you: Be careful in selecting your yarns, then leave caution to the wind. Keep the colours complimentary, even matchy-poo, and the rest will follow. Don’t be afraid to ask your friendly local yarn dealer for help in selecting contrasting, but complementary yarns.

This is a good second crochet project. It does not require any shaping but it is necessary to be able to read the pattern and be comfortable with the 3 different stitches.
