I love beautiful things, but I also love a crochet project that is quick and easy to make, and that is exactly what this scarf is! It is soft and warm with plenty of gorgeous drape, and would be a perfect accessory to wear on a winter date night (Valentines is just around the corner, ladies)! The pattern gets it’s name from the color I used as well as the “twisting” motion of the design.  You’ll need to know the basics--chain, slip stitch, single crochet and double crochet to crochet this scarf, which means even someone who is a beginner should get the hang of this pattern fairly quickly.

Did you know, there is also a matching slouch hat to complete this set?


Materials Needed:
5mm (H) hook, or hook needed to obtain gauge
200-225 yards of Caron Simply Soft
