Turn your scarf into a vest! This is a fun project, using the crochet pineapple design to add a racer back and straps to a scarf. I came across this idea as I was going through my closet trying to decrease my wardrobe. I have quite a few scarves that I never wear, and was about to put them into my “donate” pile, when the idea hit me. So I played around with the design for a day, and this is how it turned out! I am quite happy with it and can’t wait to make more.
