Columns with Shells Scarf - US Version
This unisex scarf works up quickly using a super bulky yarn. With the thick yarn and textured stitches, it provides beautiful
protection against the harsh winds of late fall and winter.
Although the pattern is rated intermediate because it uses front and back post stitches, it is actually quite simply to make.
This pattern includes both written instructions in U.S. crochet terminology and an international crochet stitch symbol chart. (A version with U.K. crochet terminology and an international stitch symbol chart is also available here.) This pattern will take about 3-7 hours to complete.
