Several years ago, I went to a conference in Phoenix. I stepped out of the hotel just in time to see a beautiful sunset. That sunset was the inspiration for this scarf/cowl.

This is crocheted in rows, so it can be worn as a scarf or a circle scarf/infinity cowl. I’ve included two photo tutorials: one for making the front post cluster stitch, and one for joining the edge invisibly. These are on the last two pages, so you can choose whether or not to print them.
