The Asheville Scarf is a beautiful crochet plaid. It looks way more complicated than it really is. With just two stitches (the chain stitch and double crochet stitch), you can make this. The pattern is worked in Peerie yarn by Brooklyn Tweed, which I found to make the softest and warmest fabric. Any fingering weight yarn can be substituted, just make sure all four colors are the same type of yarn. Making the scarf is a two-step process, first making a mesh background, and then working a chain overlay - chain stitches worked vertically in the spaces. While this pattern is not difficult, it is time consuming, but so worth it!
